I go this email from my friend Josh today:

“We were thinking last night Obama’s electoral college margin of victory was looking pretty impressive, and given the last couple of elections it is obviously is. But I found this site that shows all the presidential electoral returns in our country’s history, and really Obama’s margin probably doesn’t even rank in the top third (I didn’t do the math). You only have to go back to Reagan v Mondale to find near unimaginable dominance, a 525 to 13 walloping! The biggest margin of victory I found, though, goes to FDR in 1936 over Alfred Landon (You remember him right? With the beard? And the thing?) 523 to 8 (remember Alaska and Hawaii’s 7 votes weren’t available as they were just territories then)! Jefferson also had a landslide victory back in the day (1804), as well as an electoral tie (1800) with Aaron Burr! Cool stuff.

Happy New Paradigm, everyone!
Josh”

About the magazine
Each month or so, we release a new issue of “I left this here for you to read.” We then leave them in public places (such on park benches, on buses, in airports and dentists’ offices…) for anyone to take—free of charge.

Currently, we distribute our magazine in Boston, New York, and LA. We only print about 50 copies of each issue, and don’t reprint any past issues. Sorry, we can’t mail you any copies—we only send them to contributors.

Would you like to submit something to our magazine?
We will automatically include anything we receive, as long as it fits into the following guidelines:

Written pieces—must be no longer than 400 words.
Images—must be black and white (aka “gray scale”).
Physical objects—must be flat, or very thin, and smaller than 8 ½” x 5 ½”. They must be able to fit into a small envelope, or a two-inch square plastic bag; or must be able to be stapled or taped to a page. All objects must be nontoxic, and legal. (Note: if you would like us to include physical objects in our next issue, you must mail us 50 copies of said object. Or 50 different ones.)

All contributors will receive 2 copies of the issue that their material appears in. The will also have their name listed on our website (unless they don’t want their name listed on their website).

Please email submissions to: i.left.this.here@gmail.com
