Any old-school skateboarder can tell you the benefits of reading a magazine like Thrasher. You can get skate tips, athlete profiles and deck buying advice. If you skate at all, then there's probably something useful for you to read in Thrasher.

Dr. Seuss Went to War
Dr. Seuss wasn't just concerned with green eggs and ham. In fact, before he began writing children's stories he was drawing political cartoons as the chief editorial cartoonist for the New York newspaper PM. The site has over 200 drawings from Dr. Seuss covering topics such as war bonds, Hitler and other elements of World War II. It's very disturbing in a way to spot Seuss-like characters in the throes of war and ethnic stereotypes.
