Kafkaesque

Maniacal machinations in Foxboro; facts are stupid things
It was only fitting that when the New England Patriots signed professional God-botherer Tim Tebow on Tuesday, they let go of back-up quarterback Mike Kafka. Tebow’s coming to the Pats was indeed a disorienting metamorphosis moment that old Franz K. and Gregor Samsa would have recognized.

New kids on the block

Congrats to Marcel and Karen; reading with Sheldon; farewell, Jonathan
Though he spent a stint as executive director of the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation under Governor Lincoln "Missing Linc" Almond, Marcel Valois — the newly named head ramrod of the beleaguered EDC — is hardly a household name in The Biggest Little. (Unless, of course, you live in a household with a lot of people named Marcel or Valois.)
