News in Briefs

A little over a week ago, word leaked that Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina was missing. And actually, it wasn't leaked, it came out directly, from his wife. She said he was off hiking the Appalachian Trail (is that what the kids are calling it these days?) in hopes to get some writing done. Except, he wasn't on the Appalachian Trail. He was on some lady's happy trail, down Buenos Aires way. And last week, the American public was treated to another political scandal involving a once-sanctimonious politician, now caught with his pants around his ankles.

Governor Sanford was last in the news when he refused to take federal stimulus money earlier in the year. This makes sense, politically, as the Governor was spending state money to travel down to Argentina to see his mistress. Plus, he probably wanted to avoid all those adultery/stimulus jokes. Hi-yo!

Forget Mark Sanford. Where's the news about Sotomayor's racist decision against the white firefighters being overturned?
