Running the Derby

Today is the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby, styled the best two minutes in sports. Here is another riff on a theme I raised earlier. And one of America's greatest authors, William Faulkner, described literately the spectacle that is the Kentucky Derby.

That's why there aren't many women jockeys. They try to make the race as long as possible.

You should check out the Washington Post's "Style Invitational" contest for the Derby weekend ... the challenge is to take any two horses (regardless of sex), mate them, and then tell what you'd name the resulting foal. Some of them are completely hysterical.
