Random Nerd Nostalgia: Wonder Woman for President


[Image description: The cover of the first Ms. magazine from 1972. Smaller headlines read "Gloria Steinem on How Women Vote," "Money for Housework," "New Feminist: Simone de Beauvoir," "Body HaiR: The Last Frontier." The large headline, in read, reads "WONDER WOMAN FOR PRESIDENT" There is an image of a GIANT World War II-era Wonder Woman, striding across the landscape towards the reader. In one hand she holds her magic lasso, which is cradling a home and community. On that side of her, there is a peaceful suburban community: houses, buildings, cars. With the other hand she reaches out to a battle landscape--a plane is crashing, tanks are firing, parachutes dropping, and explosions. A large sign reads "PEACE AND JUSTICE IN '72."]

I could use a little peace and justice in '12. Here's to expecting more.
