Death to liquid layouts

Why, why, why do people still insist on using liquid layouts? Let me rephrase that: why do people still insist on using the sort of layout where the main content column is not a specified width between 400 and 600 pixels (or thereabouts)? When was the last time you opened a newspaper or magazine and had to scan the entire width of the page to read the content? Never. The answer is never. So why is it that some people assume that just because they’re using pixels and not ink I want to scan my entire monitor (or, more accurately, the entire width of my browser)? I assure you, I don’t enjoy resizing my browser as much as you must think I do. Stop torturing me.
