Sean Edlridge is a marriage activist, financier, extremely handsome, and married to Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes. He’s just filed to explore a run for Congress, and here are ten things you should know about him. As a side note, the fact that he has nearly unlimited funds available to him, and his husband owns The New Republic should make for an interesting campaign.
The models for the Archer characters are just regular people that the creators knew, and handed over photos to animators to get the look. Find out who they are here, but one description struck me. “Cyril is actually the two-dimensional incarnation of well-hung Atlanta restaurateur Stuart Fierman.” What kind of pictures of Fierman did they give to the animators?

Megan Phelps-Roper and her sister Grace have left the Westboro Baptist Church, and are now shunned by the hate group.
