The second volume of P.L.A.I.N. Janes from Minx hit stores this week, along with the sad news that the Minx imprint will cease publication in January.

Givhan waxes aesthetic for several paragraphs about Palin's ... Read More

I love that our cover girl Sarah Silverman is involved in this campaign by JewsVote.org that is organizing a weekend where folks can go down to Florida and convince their grandparents (Zadie and Buppy) to vote Obama. She made this video for theGreatShlep.com and it's hilarious and hopefully effective! She's the pied piper of hipster Jews! Even if you're not Jewish, this seems like a good tactic to try on your ...
