The local news outlets have been in a frenzy today over a major story. Bin Laden’s been captured? Nope. Tomorrow’s debates? Not worth the time. The war in Iraq? Old news. No, this kind of media orgasm in the DC area is reserved exclusively for sports stories.

DC is being given custody of the soon to be ex-Montreal Expos. Semi-major league baseball returns to the Capital! And the city, in it’s infinite stupidity, gets to pay for the stadium. At least the residents of the District may soon have plenty of guns with which to celebrate – thanks to their alternate city council/big daddy (aka Congress).

I’m glad I live in Virginia. Well, semi-glad. We managed to avoid getting stuck with a baseball stadium but this is still the home of that breeder of fine Congressional lap dogs, the NRA.
