Passing the torch
John Morris, a colleague in the news bureau of Information and Public Affairs, will be writing the daily bulletin for the remainder of this week. Chris Redmond will return next week and again will be responsible for the bulletin. Thanks for reading and for keeping me on my toes.
Finally, in keeping with yesterday's round of guess-the-celebrity birthday announcements, a slumping Toronto Blue Jay player who had his best years playing on the shores of another Great Lake turns 39 today, while Penny Marshall's less successful half turns 47.
