As Ernesto fizzles, some recommended reading:

  • I know this is a couple of days old, but for those playing the home version of the "Sean Daly Overwriting Contest," here are a couple of more entries from his latest, a review of Outkast's Idlewild: "flavored with juke joint stank and related speakeasery;" "jazzbo trippiness;" "fiendishly scattershot;" "tizzied kickoff;" "crazy cornucopia;" "melodic madness;" and "gutbucket-guitar pluck." To quote Albert Brooks: "A lot of alliteration from anxious anchors placed in powerful posts." God, we can't wait for his review of the new Dylan disc.

  • In Pinellas, Calvin Harris rips county Dem chief Ed Helm a new one.

  • The Sarsota Herald-Tribune updates us on the Congressional District 13 race between Jan Schneider and Christine Jennings. Jennings is the one anointed by the DCCC Schneider beat her in the primary last time but is having a hard time getting traction in this race.

  • Latest Quinnipiac polling on the governor's race: Crist big, Smith tightens.

  • Sure, it was funnier when Leslie Nielsen did it in one of the Naked Guns, but the CNN reporter with an open mic in the bathroom is not bad either.
