Romney and Big Bird, Geekiest License Plates, Beware of newbie presidents, Dan Grobstein File

The geekiest license plates of all time.

Daniel Dern found the Romney vs. Big Bird ad.

Sherry Grobstein notes a Boston Globe column by James Carroll that begins "Newly elected presidents can be dangerous. Untested and inexperienced, they can act in the name of national security to soothe a personal insecurity. Appearing tough, they think, can make them tough." It ends up being an endorsement of Obama. But then the only state as blue as California is Massachusetts.
