Sports Day (Japan)
I can think of no better way to celebrate Sports Day than by watching the Yankees-free ALCS Game One tonight.
Some things to read between now and then:
From the Register: Wilton mayor's career wilts after being caught dealing marijuana.
If you didn't have enough reasons to dislike John Mauro already, Marc Hansen wants to tell you about more of them.
Apparently David Yepsen is having an odor-themed week. On Sunday, he wrote about the need to eliminate odor from hog confinements. Today, he writes about the gubernatorial campaign. It's another sign of how ugly things have gotten: even Yepsen is calling for the end of negative ads.
If middle schoolers could vote, the Culver camp would already be writing the attack ad: A vote for Nussle is a vote for more homework. IE has the details.
Finally, in a non-political note, my good friend Emeric's blog is sometimes hilarious, and he hit the jackpot today:
So I will take solace that the company that markets Herbal Essence (which had some pretty racy commercials to being with) has released a new brand/style/flavor: Dangerously Straight.
I can hardly wait until they release Safely Gay, Delightfully Bi-Curious, and Treacherously Castrated.
