commented on Recycling My Back Pages: A Music Writer/Collector Reflects on Disposing of His Magazine Archive
Very sad. And wasteful.
You had other choices beyond donating them to UW (who likely wouldn't have wanted them) and listing them one by one on eBay.
You could have spent two minutes putting a "Free - must take all" posting on Craigslist. You could have sat them outside. You could have easily donated them to a a wide variety of places.
Several years ago at Short Run Peter Bagge had a "garage sale" at his table where he sold a lot of old comics and magazines he no longer wanted. I ended up buying a bunch of issues of Spy. There are people that would have wanted your Creems and Forced Exposure and other mags.

@2: "everyone knew the Clinton was going to win and she didnt"
No, everyone didn't know or expect that. Even places like 538 gave him a 30% or so chance of winning. Polls showed tight races in battleground states (and with the margin of error a toss up). Sure, she was ahead in national polls, which MSM loves to report on, but those as you know are meaningless in an EV world. The "shocking upset" wasn't really all that shocking.

@4: This wasn't about "the arguments against third (and fourth and fifth...) parties", it was about third party choices for President of the United States. I'm guessing that he, like Dan and others, can see a value in third parties being on city council and various local offices. But to think that a plurality of voters will out of the blue vote for a third party person is a bit silly, no?
