Odds and Endings

1. Simon Spero wins the headline contest.

2. Materazzi admits he insulted Zadane. Defends self by claiming he doesn't know what a terrorist is, so he wouldn't have used THAT insult.

3. North Carolina's solons pass the "All Off You Vill Say Der Pledge, Unt You Vill Like It!" legislation. But not before elbowing each other out of the way, like pigs at a trough, trying to claim credit.

4. Kevin Morrison, one of our cool grad students in Poli Sci at Duke, publishes a very nice op-ed in the News and Observer. Good ON ya, Kevin!
