It's one of those sorts of weeks. Time for a wrap-up-
THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE-
GOOD NEWS: Former New York Mayor Rudy "9-11" Guiliani is no waffler- he showed his ability to take a side and stick to it by declaring that he has "always" favored putting gun legislation in the hands of the states, not the Federal government.
BAD NEWS: "Always" in Rudy-speak apparently means "since last Thursday", as those pesky news reporters proceeded to dig up multiple instances between 2000 and 2006 when Rudy publicly called for tough Federal gun-control laws.
GOOD NEWS: The press has stopped using words like "liar" and "duplicitous" when referring to Presidential candidates lying duplicitously, so Rudy is going to be able to "clarify" his comments.
THE RED SOX-
GOOD NEWS: The Pennant Race is roaring down the home stretch.
BAD NEWS: Our Sox are doing 90 mph in reverse.
GOOD NEWS: Josh Beckett goes for his 20th win of the season tonight.
BAD NEWS: All the rest of the pitchng staff are throwing like New York Yankees (and former Red Sox)
BAD NEWS: You have to wonder whether, if OJ gets convicted of ten counts of armed assault and kidnapping, the former NFL star is too much of a crazy-ass psycho to be safely incarcerated in Nevada Penal System.
GOOD NEWS: I hear Blackwater's still hiring.
GOOD NEWS: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will not be allowed to visit Ground Zero during his visit to New York.
GOOD NEWS: Maybe Vice President Dick Cheney will make it up to the Iranian leader by taking him hunting.
