Thoughts about politics? Jim Geraghty notes a report on Chris Dodd from Connecticut: "At the well-attended annual meeting of the Northwest Connecticut Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, outgoing President Joe Greco’s comments about various dignitaries, including Gov. M. Jodi Rell, being unable to make it was followed by a crack about Dodd being available but the group asking him to stay away. It was met by laughter and a very loud round of applause from the several hundred, typically reserved, local businesspeople, in the room."

Plus: any thoughts on the NFL Draft? Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune cracked wise about Minnesota's decision to draft wide receiver Percy Harvin: "Just as there are no atheists in foxholes, there can't be any moralists in NFL draft rooms. Saturday night, the Vikings selected a pot-smoking, coach-challenging, injury-hampered athlete from Florida." Randy Moss parallels?
