Virginia Postrel joins the Trent Lott career change supporters. Speaking of the illustrious former male cheerleader, Mark Kleiman notes that Howell Raines over at the NYT is AWOL; apparently he's too busy hectoring Tiger Woods about Augusta to pursue a real news story.

Oh, in case it isn't clear what I think: Lott should go. Yesterday.
Landrieu wins in Louisiana by 40,000, probably a wider margin than expected; however, the 5th district race is basically a dead heat (Alexander is ahead by 518 votes, with 50.15 percent of the vote).
Virginia also lets us know she never really was a brunette; it must have been the lighting in the old photo. For those who've clicked through, there's more coverage on the front page.
