In a surprise to almost no one, Lincoln Chafee has decided to quit the race for the Democratic nomination for president. The Daily News headline sums it up pretty well.

You look closer at the numbers. Something funky about that font. Check out that 0. Call it San Francisco Sound. Prime example: Moby Grape's 1968 Grape Jam LP cover.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a brand new tennis ball along the lefthand margin of the westbound BQE, just as it dips to go under the Brooklyn Bridge. And then another, and another, and another... They seem to have been dumped and rolled down along the edge of the highway. Art project or frustrated tennis player?
