Initially a celebration of African American women for Black History Month, Eunique Jones Gibson’s project “Because of Them, We Can” grew to include a diverse array of women who have made a significant mark on history.

“When I urinate in public, I never get caught on camera,” and other anti-Rob Ford lawn signs [3 pictures]

April 1, 2014 | No comments

A series of three ads appeared in Toronto this week to communicate that “Anyone’s better than Rob Ford.” People following the bizarre behavior of Toronto’s beleaguered mayor will have a difficult time arguing with the ads from No Ford Nation, whose lawn signs promote completely fabricated candidates who aren’t actually running for office. Their credentials are very convincing though…
