    CANDIDATE'S SEXY PHOTOS POSTED
    Congressional candidate Krystal Ball says she's angry that Republican bloggers posted private photos of her at a costume party, and that it is a sexist tactic meant to divert attention from the issues. The suggestive photos, taken of Ball and her ex-husband at a costume party about six years ago when she was 22, were posted online Tuesday by a conservative blog and reposted by several other bloggers. The original blog later took down the photos. (Fredericksburg.com)

    TO SHARE OR NOT TO SHARE
    The Marine Corps Marathon here bills itself as “the people’s marathon.” As the largest marathon in the world that does not offer prize money, it expects a field of 30,000 runners for this year’s race, on Oct. 31.  But apparently the inclusive spirit does not extend to the portable toilets.  Runners in the marathon and participants in rallies organized by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will share the Mall on the Halloween weekend. On back-to-back days, they will take to the same streets, walk on the same lawn and enjoy the same scenery, with the Capitol as the backdrop.  (NY Times)
