Let's see . . . college basketball is the lead here at Medary:
Tennessee Lady Vols beat #1 LSU[*1] to win the SEC championship.
Missouri beats Kansas[*2] . Mizzou salvages a .500 regular season.
Illinois gets beat by Ohio State[*3] , so it looks like South Dakota State's rumored opener next year against the Illini won't feature a returning undefeated national champion vs. a first-year D-I RPI counter.
The Sgrena Incident[*4] (the Italian Communist journalist wounded in a U.S. attack in Iran). Something is odd about this whole thing, and not just Sgrena's paranoid thought that she was deliberately targeted.
It wasn't just me: I admit I was wondering what was up with all of the really photogenic Lebanese women showing up in photos of the demonstrations against Syria. Megablogger Instapundit (Glenn Reynolds)[*5] notices, too. (Yes, I know it's a cynical mechanism to grab attention, ya think I was born yesterday?)
