Our May 2010 issue has been selected by the American Society of Magazine Editors as a finalist for Best Cover in the "News and Business" category. You can vote for The Atlantic over at Amazon, which is hosting the contest. (Click on Best in News & Business in the left column.)
The May issue featured a compelling story by Marc Ambinder on the war against obesity in America. The wonderful cover illustration is by Alex Ostroy.
Bonus: Vote for The Atlantic (or, OK, any of the other nominees) and you can win a Kindle.
