The Chain Gang

Holy cow. I thought this was a joke when I heard about it on NPR last week, even the commentators were making jokes about it. They interviewed one of the racers who said it was "a tremendous opportunity."

I hate to say it, but I am glad those are not my tax dollars at work.

Spitz spits fit

Spitz was on the Today show this morning (not a bastion of journalism, but whatever) and pretty much said he had been taken out of context and/or misquoted in the reports that had him as pouty. It sounded a bit like damage control, but the main focus of his comments was around heaping praise on today's athletes and Phelps in particular.

I thought he came off pretty good, even with the linked article as background.
