It's A Free Book!

The most recent FIMP Book of the Month is a guide to interpreting the body language of your fellow citizens while you're waiting in line at the polls this Tuesday.

I thought it would be a useful public service to make this book available in a downloadable online version, so folks will have something to do while waiting in those long lines to vote.

How does this sit with the two major party candidates?

This piece of paper is all about change. This isn't a book that FIMP made - this is a book that we, together, are going to make. And here's a step by step plan showing how we're going to make it.

Listen to the eloquence, my friends. He says it's a book - but it's just a single sheet of paper. Words matter, my friends, and this is just not a book we can believe in.

The beauty of our democracy is that when it comes right down to it, you get to decide whether or not you want to download this file, follow the directions in the video, and call the resulting product a book. You can get the image file you need right here:

Election 2008: Body Language

and then you might want to watch the following video, which explains how to cut and fold the page to make the eight page book. Be warned though - the video channels the rhetoric of all of the candidates' performances in this year's debates.
