More mopping up this morning of last week's softball. Vanity Fair filed a report late yesterday on its Thursday-night drubbing of the Air America team — dubbed by the VF wits the "Pugnacious Progressives," "Blue-State Broadcasters," "Syndicated Seditionists," and "Left Dialers." Valiantly playing on the face of an impending deluge, VF and Air America held on reach the middle of the fourth, when the game ended in a 9-4 VF win. So how could it take from Thursday night till Monday afternoon to write up three and a half innings? The nicknames, clearly.
