Rolling Stone Cover is Weird, Wrong

On the right is the cover of the latest Rolling Stone.

Two thoughts:

1) It is weird, sexist and sort of pathetic. Why is Julia Louis-Dreyfus naked? What does that have to do with her being “The First Lady of Comedy?” It’s so over-the-top for no reason that it comes across as desperate. Even Rolling Stone’s tweet about the issue — ”Julia Louis-Dreyfus is naked on our new cover” — was sad. Pay attention to us! Please??? We have a naked lady on our cover!

2) It is wrong. John Hancock did not sign the Constitution, he signed the Declaration of Independence.
