Countdown to Futility: Nats '08
As this potentially historic baseball season enters its final month, our Washington Nationals are on track to post the worst record in Washington history, surpassing any misery that the forlorn Senators made legendary.
Today, if you do nothing else, you must read Stephen Hunter's fabulous piece in Style on the power and the majesty of losing, and the one true way to cope.
If you need an antidote to the acres of coverage of a political convention in which there is no news, this is your story. If you need to understand what newspapers can provide that the web has not yet found a way to generate, this is today's read. If you just love a great bunch of sentences, go read it now.
