Evening Musings-What was the WaPo editor thinking?-"Interns Unafraid to Get Dirty." The piece is about blue-collar summer jobs like trash pickup and zoo mainanence, but doesn't that title sound a bit too much like Monica? The headline was scary ("Judge Strikes Down Portion of California's Recall Law"), but the reality's a non-event. Based on this recent ruling, voters who neglected to vote yes or no on the recall portion can still have their vote counted in the replacement election. Empowerment for Mugwumps! Bad fans aren't just an Anglospheric thing; check out this piece about KFC having to protect its Colonel Sanders statues from rowdy Hanshin Tigers fans closing in on their first title in 18 years. You've heard of the Curse of the Bambino and (maybe) the Curse of Rocky Colavito; I just got introduced to the "curse of the Sanders statue."
