Other interesting stories in The Washington Post:

Sanford, right, back on the campaign trail, in Beaufort, S.C. (Jay Karr/AP)
Mark Sanford — yes, that one! — is launching a comeback, four years after the “Appalachian Trail”/Argentinian mistress scandal that seemed to end the South Carolina governor’s political future. And believe it or not, it looks like he may easily overcome Ted Turner’s son and Stephen Colbert’s sister to win a seat in Congress, reports our colleague Karen Tumulty.

Sally Field in 1985. (AP)
Greer Garson was the first winner to bore everyone; Ed Begley the first to thank his agent; and Vanessa Redgrave the first to shock with a political statement. Check out the nine Oscar speeches that changed the world, or something like that. And click here to read Ann Hornaday’s take on the 2012 Oscar crop, plus more Oscars coverage.

Tandyn Almer in 1967. (Henry Diltz)
In other news: Ryan Little tried to ask indie rock pioneer Jonathan Richman some interview questions; he responded with a charming, handwritten poem. . . . And belatedly, in case you missed it last week: The story of Tandyn Almer, a pop music genius and rising star of the 1960s — you know his “Along Came Mary” — who died after years of obscurity last month in an unkempt McLean basement. Fascinating, poignant and yet strangely not as sad as you expect story by our colleague Matt Schudel.
