Mitt unzipped

WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney "unzipped" is the stuff of cartoonists' dreams.

Noted and passed -- April 6, 2012

• Everybody realizes that airline food isn't the best – even if you get anything at all to eat, which isn't often -- but a woman traveling on Qantas Airlines from Los Angeles to Melbourne, Australia, last week got the ultimate insult -- crawling maggots in a bag of trail mix distributed by a flight attendant. There's no word on whether she had to use her airline sickness bag after discovering the creatures mid-snack, but Qantas' offer to her -- $400 off her $1,600 ticket -- seems a bit chintzy.

Food for fines at the library

At some point, most people have had fines for overdue library books. As offenses go, it's pretty slight. Nonetheless, librarians report that patrons will often avoid the library after accruing fines, both to avoid paying them and from embarrassment. Many library services can't be utilized once excessive fines accrue. Even new online services, like downloading e-books and music, are blocked if a patron's account is not in good standing.

Voter ID

Politicians are known to exaggerate from time to time, and U.S. Rep. James Clyburn followed that tradition earlier this week when he said a South Carolina law requiring voters to show a picture ID when going to the polls hearkens back to the Jim Crow era, when all sorts of measures prevented blacks from going to the polls. Those days are gone forever, though they remained in force for too long, and the new law -- it's being challenged by the Obama administration's Justice Department -- poses no threat to trying to disenfranchise people. Rather, it's a safeguard ...

The planes that didn’t crash

Most of us are familiar with the antiquated adage of "no news is good news" or its cohort, "bad news travels fast." With the former, the absence of information to the contrary justifies continued optimism. Bad news is usually associated with more urgent matters; matters we are inclined to transfer more quickly to one another. Good news is boring, right? News is defined one way as "matter that is newsworthy." Newsworthy is defined as "interesting enough to the general public to warrant reporting." If we really think about it, good news rarely fits the definition of "news" because it is ...

Making the rounds

A few hundred yards away, trucks carrying workers zig-zagged their way in and around the Springdale Race Course in final preparation for Saturday's 83rd running of the Carolina Cup. Tucked away in a barn located behind the National Steeplechase Museum, Brian Murphy stands atop the straw in a stall as he brushes down one of his horses with the only sound here being that of a few chirping birds on a relaxed Monday morning.
