Linux Journal is carried by some newsstands (including all Computer
Literacy stores) and is delivered to newsstands
by a newsstand distributor. If you know a place that sells magazines
that you feel should stock LJ, send e-mail to dist@ssc.com or have them
call SSC at 206-782-7733.  Getting LJ on newsstands is one of the best
ways we can show the non-Internet crowd that Linux is for real.
