5 days, but who's counting? (the whole f*ckin planet, that's who!)

I love this cover from the upcoming issue of THE NATION, with Obama being sworn into office, surrounded by civil rights figures from history. Just spotted it over at Daily Kos, and the artist, John Mavroudis, has other work here. Kind of fun at first to see how many figures you can identify, but then seeing the four young girls who were killed in a 1963 church bombing (bottom right) really hits kinda hard.
