By Stephen Lemons

Grampa McCain can’t figure out affirmative action. Orders Confederate troops to fire on Fort Sumter. Helicopter guys get a memorial. D-backs take broom to Frisco, get to use it. Rodgers-Cromartie makes Card camp. Tim Nelson berates Barnett Lotstein. Gotbaums say Phoenix too mean for trial. (Phoenix, mean? Naaah.) New PAC seeks Russell Pearce’s defeat. (Welcome to the club, bubs.) Plus Juggalos, an air guitar god, and ex-Republic columnist Jon Talton found alive and well, sipping java in Seattle.
