The Going Rogue Index

Sarah Palin didn't put an index in her book. So we made one for her.


When Sarah Palin's 413-page autobiography, Going Rogue: An American Life, hit stands Tuesday, readers discovered the governor's most mavericky move yet—that the book lacks an index. So Slate has compiled its own. Just print out this index, paste it into the back of your copy, and start skipping around! (And yes, the page numbers are real.)

"If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat?" :rotfl: Hilarious! Aren't we people technically made from meat too? Should we start to cannibalize each other because Sarah says it is God's plan?

That could be true, TS. But you just know she's going to be making a boatload of money on the book and on its tour.

It may have been a money issue. I never realized that indexing is actually a job, they have to pay someone to write the index, so maybe they were cutting corners.
