Occupying with the right magazine

This week, as part of the “Take Back the Capitol” protests, demonstrators from Mass Uniting did some occupying in the sitting area of Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-Mass.) office. Here’s a shot, taken by Getty Images:

What we here at the Washington Monthly found interesting about the image was the coffee table. If you look carefully, around the center of the table, you’ll see our current print issue on top of a pile of other publications.

Now, I can’t say whether the magazine was brought by the protesters or if the Republican senator always makes the Monthly available in his waiting area.

Either way, it’s always good to know the print edition of the Monthly is making the rounds.
