Anyone notice the stark contrast on the front page of today's BeloJo

Providence Journal Front Page March 27, 2008

Analysts say that even though the WOMEN & CHILDREN turned out many more supporters, the MEN IN SUITS have connections where it counts: at the top (and they're not afraid of paying off the refs!).

Stay tuned!
