DCeptette: Dorks, dogs, Dayton and Disappointment Version

  1. World of Craigslist: When someone posts on Craigslist that they are seeking interested parties in an activity they describe as "Bad News Bears with paddles", you think pedophilia, but it's actually about cricket--the sport that's not sweeping the nation! (Craigslist)
  2. More World of Craigslist: Who would have thought the lost track from Soul Coughing's El Oso would surface here? (Craigy and his list)
  3. The Washington DC public policy tango tracks it's traditional course: first, the people complain. Then, a movement gathers to fight on their behalf. Next, they announce that they will fight their battle to the death. Finally, they announce that everyone should downplay their expectations. The new tune they're dancing to? The Baseball Stadium Rag. Anti-stadium forces now pretty much admit they don't have a snowball's chance in hell. (Post)
  4. The Hill introduces our buddies over at Dork City, in a desperate attempt to own the stereotype before it becomes impossible. Speaking of dorks, many Hill staffers are jealous of how Mark Dayton's staff gets to stay home from work, apparently blissfully unaware of what panicky idiots Dayton and his fellows look like. (The Hill)
  5. Please note: when you hear about George Stephanopoulos' dog biting a young boy, the press is referring to an actual dog, and not to Ali Wentworth, as many have surmised. Additionally, Wentworth has been spayed already. Repeat, has been spayed. (Leiby)
