When I called U.S. News and World Report directly I was told that it
turned into a biweekly publication in Sept 08.  It continued that way
until Dec 31.  In January 09 they did not publish at all.  U.S. News and
World Report will become a once a month publication as of the Feb. 09

I just got my February issue today Vol. 146, No. 1. I was shocked by the
monthly pattern as well. According to the renewal invoice this was
to continue being a monthly title.
