Reflecting upon the current state of affairs under our dark overlord, next week's cover of the New Yorker will feature an extinguished Statue of Liberty flame. Editor Françoise Mouly explains:

This year, as a response to the opening weeks of the Trump Administration, particularly the executive order on immigration, we feature John W. Tomac’s dark, unwelcoming image, “Liberty’s Flameout.” “It used to be that the Statue of Liberty, and her shining torch, was the vision that welcomed new immigrants. And, at the same time, it was the symbol of American values,” Tomac says. “Now it seems that we are turning off the light.”
