Thinking about Todd Akin, ‘True Blood’ and more

    • American idiot

      Here’s truly hoping that by the time you read this, senatorial candidate Todd Akin has already, to paraphrase his words about rape, shut the whole campaign down. —Ken Miller, associate editor

    • Blocked

      A comically severe traffic backup on the 15 forced me to spend the night in Primm. Where my hotel room hallway smelled like feces. On the plus side, the martinis were cheap. —Rick Lax, staff writer

    • Wish list

      I wish every weekend in Las Vegas could include Ryan Lochte (in a tiny Speedo), Jennifer Lopez (in beaded cat suits) and Enrique Iglesias (because I like it). —Don Chareunsy, contributing editor

    • HBO-verwhelmed

      Looking forward to this Sunday, which will mark the end of a contentious few months in my household as my wife will force me to watch the season finale of True Blood before I return the favor by making her watch the last episode of The Newsroom. Then we will argue about which show is suckier. —Brock Radke, web & food editor

    • In case of emergency ...
