Whaddya gonna do without me, David Remnck?

New Yorker editor David Remnick was clearly jonesing harder than we were without his Sunday Sopranos fix (HBO took the Memorial weekend off before airing the final two episodes) as his withdrawal led to this farewell ode in the New Yorker:

Everyone in “The Sopranos” has grown older (and we along with them). One after another, the made men and crew members disappear from the stage — an accelerated version of what happens naturally. “Hope comes in many forms,” Dr. Melfi tells Tony in one of their first sessions. “Well, who’s got the time for that?” he replies. The end is a mystery, but we know one thing: “The Sopranos” defied Aristotelian conventions. It is a comedy that ends with a litany of the dead and missing. Whaddya gonna do?
