'The Dark Knight Rises' Shooting Victim's Last Blog Post Heartbreakingly Sad

Two months ago, sports blogger Jessica Redfield witnessed a shooting in Toronto’s Eaton Centre shopping mall. The experience, as I think it would with any of us, caused her to reflect on how precious and fleeting life is. Last night, Jessica Refield went to the Batman screening in Colorado. A 24 year old gunman began shooting 15 minutes into the movie, and Jessica was killed along with 11 other people (50 were wounded).

F*ck, Marry, Kill: Archie. Reggie. Jughead.

During last week’s extremely contentious Star Wars showdown, a lovely reader named Maggie suggested a F*ck Marry Kill starring… the boys of Archie comics, weirdly. So, because editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff care, we did one. Of course, Ashley has never read an Archie comic, but that’s never stopped them before. As always, if you need a refresher on how to play “Fuck, Marry, Kill,” that sure surprises us, but here’s one anyway.
