A Love Letter to Rainy Summer Days

To you, Rainy Summer Day, I don’t know how to say this subtly, so I’ll just say it: I love you. So much. Like Adam Levine loves his own shirtless body; Like Colin Firth loves Elizabeth Bennett in BBC’s “Pride and Prejudice.” You are Elizabeth, and I am Colin, and I am asking you to… Read More »

Mindy Kaling Can Date Whomever She Damn Well Pleases

“What is up with that girl? She only dates white guys!” This isn’t the kind of criticism that you hear about most characters on TV, but it is one that has been lobbed over and over at Mindy Kaling, creator and star of The Mindy Project.
