So Karen decides to create a newspaper of her very own as she decides that newspaper editors are boring as she doesn't understand concepts like Cubism and doesn't know that rite is a word. Whatever, Karen. Then she convinces Hannie and Nancy to jump on board. Then she realises that holy shit, this crap is hard, and decides to end it seven weeks later.

One thing that tickles me is that they mention they're on summer break and Karen and Andrew are pumped about returning to school. Karen talks about all the teachers she loves, but there's no mention of Ms Colman, her beloved second grade teacher. Is it perhaps Karen is upset that she needs to repeat the second grade? And Andrew is only four- yet he's changing schools? Lisa, why are you fobbing your child off at such a young age?
