Oh great: Invisible Children's Jason Russell is back in business (with his pants on, hopefully) with a new campaign.

Goodbye to the Coven

"You can tell people you stalked me to get this job," Jessica said when she hired me as a full-time staff writer in April 2012 (we were kind of drunk). "I mean that as a compliment."
