Time magazine is asking for you to cast your vote. What are the best, and the worst, covers they have ever produced? It’s fun looking back over the years at all of the different subjects that have graced the cover (One about Minnesota governor Wendell Anderson expressing “The Good Life in Minnesota” is among the bad cover ideas.)
An excerpt from the 1973 cover story: “On an August Saturday afternoon, the scene is a slice of America’s Norman Rockwell past. Barefoot children play one old cat and race their wagons down gently sloping sidewalks. Under the overhanging oaks, their fathers labor with hand mowers and rakes. On one lawn up the street, a rummage sale is in progress. Station wagons, laden with children, groceries, dogs and camping equipment, and trailing boats, slide out of driveways, heading north for a week or two at the lake….” You get the picture.
