That look of concern on Miyu’s face is for the BWMs—Beached White Males—of the Mancession.

FYI, Miyu usually reads Newsweek in Japanese. English is her second language, and she has a blog!

It’s a double issue this week for the magazine, so we’ve got double the Newsweek cats. Maybe they’ll make you feel a bit better about our apocalyptic cover. We’ve also got our special report on how, ahem, dumb Americans are. Take the quiz to find out! Also check out Simon Winchester on the fascinating new research that indicates the remains of Atlantis might be found on the southwestern coast of Spain.

Props to the editors for throwing their well-laid plans out the window to cover the earthquake in Japan. In this week’s Newsweek, Simon Winchester tells us why the tsunami that struck Japan should have Californians worried, Andrew Romano and Pat Wingert report on the number of Americans killed by guns since the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (hint: it hasn’t let up), and Tony Dokoupil and Ramin Setoodeh on Celine Dion’s return to Sin City after its economic collapse.

This Newsweek cover has been brought to you by Sir Charles the Cat. Also known as Chawlie, Chuck, Charles, sweetface—or just Charlie.

Whatever you may think about the new Newsweek design, what we can tell you here from NWK/Beast HQ is that Lucky Mr. Loki, magazine house cat, is in love. (PS—sweet loafers, moneyries.)
