So I went to bed early last night, and had this bizarre dream: The Boston Red Sox, of all teams, won eight straight games in October and won the World Series. Weird, huh? All those who thought they'd ever see somebody in a Red Sox uniform and the words "I'm going to Disney World!" in the same commercial, please stand up. Liars. (Shameless effort to somehow tie this news to the management and operations of the federal government: The last time the Red Sox won, the Pendleton Act of 1883 was only 35 years old!)
