Somewhere, over the rainbow, a blog is born. A blog for Kansas. A blog for America. A blog by a reporter with a difficult-to-pronounce last name.

All right, all right

I took some hits from GOP blog-readers for the Run Against Bush mention. Fine, fine ... wasn't trying to stray from nonpartisanship, just encouraging people to get out if they're into exercise and Kerry. Would've done the same thing for a pro-Bush group if one asked. Clearly, we must take such items on a case-by-case basis. On the other hand, it's nice to know that people care.

Though no official boxscore was kept, Rep. Todd Tiahrt started at power forward and picked up eight points, along with several rebounds and a steal, as the lawmakers trounced the lobbyists last night, 58-42. Of course, if you're a lobbyist, would you want to beat the lawmakers? I mean, Tiahrt's on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee -- if you represent Lockheed Martin, do you reeeeaally wanna smoke his middle-aged mojo with a no-look 360, in-yo-face mad-skills supa-slam? Prob'ly not. And that's a shame, 'cuz I hear those Lockheed folks got game.

Spent much of the day at a preview for the new National Museum of the American Indian, due to open Tuesday. Really, really, really neat stuff -- and for the record, the best museum restaurant in which I've ever dined. They even gave away free tea. Put it on the go-to list if you're a local.
