The Chicago White Sox are planning to put President Obama's Hopenchange logo on White Sox caps this season. Fortunately, all of my Chicago-bred family members (Mrs. Carl is from Chicago as is son-in-law number 1) are Cubs fans....

Sticking with the baseball theme, author John Updike passed away this week. This is a link to his famous Hub fans bid Kid adieu - an essay about Red Sox star Ted Williams' last game in 1960 (no, I was not there). Hat Tip: Powerline.

Is a Hindu state in the offing? (Hat Tip: Puneet).
