Observed In the Port Chester Costco parking lot today, I was in line behind a Passat who's driver had their left-turn signal on, and promptly made a right turn.

The Latest Odds The NY Times reaches across the pond for a hysterical column on Irish gambling web sites offering odds on Papal candidates. For anyone who might question the legitimacy of gambling on an event tinged with such divine implications, Frank Delaney offers this rejoinder:
God may not be a gambler, but isn't that because he never felt the need?

Meanwhile, for the record, PaddyPower.com is recording a groundswell of support for Sao Paolo Cardinal Claudio Hummes, whose odds have climed to 8-1 from 12-1.

Clearly, Mourning in America's endorsements move markets!
