The Blog Shortcut, June 24 Edition

There's a lot more fresh content on's other blogs. In Demver, Teague Bohlen slaughters Pork Invaders, a new video game developed to hype the candidacy of John McCain. Play it and decide whether it gets your vote. The Cat's Pajamas salutes the missing Colorado Springs woman who prompted her own rescue via the clever use of a sports bra. That's support you can count on. Cafe Society welcomes visitors to the patio at Fleming's Steakhouse. And Backbeat Online offers a look at the latest video by Rose Hill Drive, in which Jacob Sproul pines for the office hottie. Just like the one looking at you from the next cubicle this very minute. -- Michael Roberts
