Is this the worst Time cover ever?

March 11, 2008 · 2 Comments

Time is asking readers to choose the worst cover in the magazine’s 85-year history.

GoodlifeHard to believe, but the classic "Good Life in Minnesota" cover is in the running. This image of Gov. Wendell Anderson hoisting a northern is a Minnesota icon. The article explored the Minnesota Miracle — an overhaul of education funding, tax policy and public finance — and helped cement the state’s reputation as a can-do place. (Of course, Anderson later torpedoed his political career by appointing himself to replace Vice President Walter Mondale in the U.S. Senate. And the legacy of the Minnesota Miracle is now a controversial shambles. But those are other stories.)

So far, voting has the "Good Life" cover hovering in 12th place. Lots of people are voicing an opinion on this one — the Minnesota issue is among the top three in total votes cast. You can see all the "worst cover" candidates and weigh in here. Also, see below to cast your vote on the MinnyMix poll.
