Just in time for her upcoming appearance in Washington, The Guardian‘s Ana Marie Cox has a new tattoo on her arm. She described it “brand new” and “not subtle” and something “that took a long time to do.” After Wired‘s Spencer Ackerman asked if it was on her lower back, she joked that it was Calvin peeing on the Chinese word for strength – with a rainbow. Then she posted a picture of what is presumably her arm on her space in her Posterous account. Guess she’s feeling patriotic?
On May 1 Cox, who left D.C. last summer, will appear on a panel for an event called “An Evening With the Guardian.” The panel will convene for cocktails at the Longview Gallery in northwest D.C. and will include The Raben Group’s Jamal Simmons, Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Josh Trevino, BuzzFeed and Rolling Stone‘s Michael Hastings, The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball and The Guardian‘s Gary Younge.
The panel will discuss “Post-Truth Politics” and the Media’s Role. The hosts are Janine Gibson, Editor-in-Chief of Guardian US and Alan Rusbridger, Editor-in-Chief of Guardian News & Media.
Post event there will be drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
