1. The founder of Time/Life, Henry Luce, was quoted as saying the #1 priority of the 20th Century

 

was the Christianization of China.

Time was hostile to any writings by gay people and, according to Gore Vidal, used the code word "sterile" when finding fault with a work of a gay person.

Time is an organ of pre-teabagger republicanism and most people I know never have taken it seriously.

2. I look at the Bewsh 43 covers and am sickened. SICKENED.

How could anyone pay homage to this pile of garbage? How could America have been so astoundingly stupid to have put this man in office for two terms (and yes, I KNOW he had a little help. No excuse for even making it close enough to steal . . . twice)??

Person of the Year twice and illustrated as if he deserves to be some revered figure . . . amazing. Simply amazing. The damage this loser's administration caused will haunt us for decades. The deaths his policies are directly responsible for are unforgivable. We're extremely lucky Great Depression II didn't happen on his watch.

31 covers to this bastard. Classic. Not even the Reagan covers anger me as much as GWB's dumbass mug.

On the other hand, I did enjoy seeing the works of the great Jack Davis.

3. I do find it interesting that Jimmy Carter, a 1 term Prez has more

covers than Pres. Obama at the end of his 1st term. I don't understand how they estimate that with 24 covers, at the end of his 1st term, that will result in 150 covers by the end of his 2nd term. Unless this was published earlier in his presidency. As Time is a weekly publication, over 4 more years thats 208 issues. So they are estimating Pres Obama will be on 125 of the 208 issues? Wow.

6. Time is a Wing-Nut operation.

It's founder was an anti-FDR RW ideologue.

4. Do you have a link to a version that can be enlarged?

I can't read it, and zooming in only goes so far.

8. Graphics

Hi Mira,

Any chance of getting the graphics to this graph? Someone close to me was taken by this and want to make this into a large poster for home. Also any chance of an updated latest graph?

Thanks

9. WOW - I forgot about posting this!

Now - as I try to research the origin - I am unable to find a version that can be enlarged or zoomed in on. If I were on a quest like you I might try to contact Time Magazine directly.
