Well, as busy as I was this weekend, I hardly had time to get online. I am catching up on things from as far back as Thursday evening.

The Boston Red Sox won on Thursday against the Yankees with a score of 5-3. Tim Wakefield got the win and Jonathan Papelbon picked up his 13th save of the season. On Friday, Matt Clement picked up the loss. Saturday was rained out. Today was also rained out.

No, I did not forget it, but Ernie Fletcher was indicted by the grand jury. It's about time that he got indicted.
A grand jury indicted Gov. Ernie Fletcher on misdemeanor charges Thursday, accusing him of illegally rewarding political supporters with state jobs.

Fletcher was charged with conspiracy, official misconduct and violating a prohibition against political discrimination.

If convicted on any of the counts, Fletcher could be removed from office, said Vicki Glass, spokeswoman for the attorney general's office. In addition, the conspiracy charge carries a potential penalty of one to 12 months in jail and a $500 fine. The other two charges carry penalties of one to six months in jail, Glass said.
Here are some reactions on the indictment. Mike Duncan filed a lawsuit against the state transportation department.

A response from Congressman (maybe future Governor?) Ben Chandler.

Sen. Bayh addreses the issue of Medicaid.

Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack traveled to Israel this past weekend.

Some more reaction to Living with War. This one from Bloomberg.

Contrary to popular opinion, Sen. Frank Lautenberg will run for re-election.

This had to be one of the best cold openings I have seen in a long time. That sketch was written by the former Vice President's daughter.

On Monday and Tuesday, you can find Jerry Lundergan on KET at night.

Sen. Arlen Spector has called for dialogue with Iran.

This is interesting. Do I read it correctly in that it says Mark Warner served as governor of two states?
But while Warner is still working on his national security experience, his gubernatorial resume is growing. The book "With All Our Might," published by the Progressive Policy Institute, the think tank associated with the Democratic Leadership Council to which both Bayh and Warner belong, listed Warner -- who was born in Indianapolis -- as being a former governor of both Virginia and Indiana.

"I'm not sure Evan is going to give me credit," Warner, "for having served in that important place as well."
Comedian Jim Belushi takes a look back at his anger.

In a state as red as Indiana, Bayh gives hope to those who are running.
