An un-related Boston Globe article Sunday on baseball explored the issue of young kids in suburban Boston declaring that they are Yankees fans, and not Red Sox fans (can you top that lameness?!).

Finally, a piece in the Times' Week in Review on Obama explores how "political analysts have wondered whether white voters don't also find him attractive because, while he is black, he is not the direct product of generations of black life in America: he is not black in the usual way."
