Anticipation mounts for congressional map – Grossman samples controversial ice cream – I for one welcome our new Green Party overlord

Seeing as the front pages are given over to something dumb Columbus Day and Day 2 of Fishgate, it’s slim pickings for headlines.

REDISTRICTING: Chatterers are still figuring out this redistricting thing, (Item, S&E, Herald, T&G) while anticipation of the congressional map leads to more and more speculation.

CLEANEST THING I COULD COME UP WITH: The state’s all-knowing ice cream expert hunts down evasive Ben & Jerry’s flavor, lets his constituents know it’s not that good.

JILL FOR PREZ.: America’s Last, Best Hope, Dr. Jill Stein, is announcing today that she’s running for president of the United States. Let that sink in. It is now, appropriately, Stein Time. (P&P)
