Lunchline: Back for the weekend

I'd like to apologize for taking a sick day yesterday. I know you appreciate the newsletter, so I don't like taking off. But every once and again, you get hit with something and you just can't go. So, thanks everyone for the kind letters. They did make me feel better!

Extra Bites

• If you see a bunch of people around town Sunday looking like a mini version of "The Amazing Race," don't be alarmed. They're just taking part in the fourth annual Post Hunt. If you don't know, that's this paper's puzzle adventure that tests your knowledge of the city. You should join!

• Quick entertainment update: Pink had a baby girl, and Rihanna's new video for "Man Down" is what plenty of people will be talking about this weekend.

• Another day, another super facepalm moment for Sarah Palin. I like this woman, but I can't defend her.
