Pick up a piece of NewStandard history!
What started as a sort of off-handed joke by a TNS editor responding to a reader's comment on a previous blog post became a strangely appealing proposal to auction off the contents of our recent response to the IRS concerning our request for tax-exempt status. So we're now using the 1400-page product of our brutal (but successful) application process as a fundraiser.
You're bidding on a massive printout of every single TNS article and staff weblog entry through February 2004 -- well over 1500 items of content spanning 1000+ pages of relatively small print, plus miscellaneous goodies and the actual 8-page letter explaining why we are anything but a front for the Democratic Party. The whole package is pictured below. Postage is included in your bid. The winning bidder receives our everlasting gratitude and the only known complete paper edition of The NewStandard.
The bidding is up to $175. Nothing fancy -- just post your bid in the comments section. Bidding ends when people stop bidding.
