I am the dimmest of bulbs first thing in the morning.
But even in my diminished capacity (not that I’m all that bright at full capacity) I couldn’t help but notice that “non-campaigning” U.S. Senate candidate Rob Simmons looked unusually good in his page one, above-the-fold picture in the Hartford Courant. (“Sources: Simmons Out.”) He had a better hairline, a firmer chin.
And then, as my eyes started to focus and the coffee began to take hold, I realized that the man in the picture above the caption “Simmons” was another candidate, Peter Schiff.
Mistake? Sure, we all make them. (Maybe it was even corrected by the time your edition was printed.)
Bad mistake? Well, Schiff is a fine looking man.
Come to think of it, you can put his picture above the caption “Brooks” any day. He has better hair than me too.
