Happy Birthday to Arthur Rhodes, one of my very favorites, 43.
World Series tonight; meanwhile, good stuff:
1. Keith Humphreys writes in defense of Arlen Specter, disputing my claims to the contrary. He may be correct!
2. What may be going on in Ohio, from Nate Cohn.
3. Reporting on binders of women and Big Bird, by Amanda Hess.
4. Joshua Tucker on Intrade; see also a follow-up.
5. And for the last time, at least for this cycle, another edition of Ann Friedman's brilliant debate wraps.
