Rushmore remodeling

Jaime Carrillo and Jaime Carrillo February 13, 2013

There’s nothing wrong with Mount Rushmore, per say. However, I think in honor of the next President’s Day, we should consider a little re-modeling. The 20th century gave us plenty of worthy heads...

Death of the party

They’re just not that into you

Jaime Carrillo and Jaime Carrillo April 18, 2012

I feel pretty bad for Gov. Mitt Romney. He’s surrounded by a party who just isn’t that into him. Every endorsement, from congressman Paul Ryan (who you could easily mistake as a more feminine Ayn Rand)...
