Pulitzer Bait: A little harsh, but that’s what the Sun‘s group home series is. But at least it’s an important local issue–the awfulness of the state’s foster care system–rather than some foreign adventure. Start here; there’s plenty more to come.
Best in Show: I’ve been sadly neglectful of the Sun‘s terrifically wry coverage of the Miss USA pageant (tonight, at the Hippodrome)–the joke’s usually buried in the third or fourth paragraph–since there’s just so much of it.
