Making the Big Move
 / 

From Slate’s “Today’s Papers” this morning:

The Washington Post leads with the lack of any hard evidence that, as previously feared, terrorists are plotting an attack around Election Day. The New York Times leads with Ohio GOP officials dispatching 3,600 recruits to polling places–many in “heavily Democratic urban neighborhoods”–to challenge voters they suspect to be ineligible. Somewhat peculiarly, the Los Angeles Times leads with the Mongolia government’s initiative to give surnames to its citizens, who have long used only their first names.

Yo, I think you mean “somewhat awesomely“! Check this ouuut!

I saw that in TP and had the same reaction: what an awesome story. I’m Matteo de Medici and I approve this message.

Gavin says…

Yeah, I’m all about this pick a name thing. “Luscious N. Delicious” is already taken, and I really kind of like “Gavin,” but I think I’ll be changing my last name to “Hammer of the Gods.”
