  • Lindsay Lohan arrived at Lynwood Correctional Facility to begin serving her 90-day jail sentence today, but according to a Sheriff’s Department spokesman, she’ll be out in 13 or 14 days.

  • It’s hard to pick one quote from this interview with Matthew Weiner about the new season of Mad Men, but here’s one of the least spoilery: He says of Don and Roger’s relationship, “How can a person be friends with Don, who gives and reveals so little?

Roger does everything that Don can’t; he’s Don’s id – partly because he’s older and had had a heart attack and is confronting his mortality. To me, one of the great tensions in the show is that people act differently at different stages of their lives.” [N.Y. Magazine]
