Follow Ups: Stormy, Smiley G and Mic Rockin' at the Library

For better or worse, Shedd's Spot has not uncovered any further information in regards to adult film star Stormy Daniels' potential run for the Sentate in 2010. (Please see the Feb. 11th Quickies Post.) But, there are stories circulating she is signing on to direct a horror movie that is to be shot in New Orleans in the near future. Shedd's Spot will also be monitoring that story. In the meantime, all readers are encouraged to post a comment speculating on what the title and premise of the movie might be.

Speaking of a horror in the making, events surrounding the Smiley G incident continue to unfold as the Nationals workout in their first week of spring training. (Please see the original post from Feb. 19.) A couple of days back, SI.com reported Nationals GM Jim Bowden is under investigation by the FBI for his dealings in the Dominican Republic going back to the days when he was GM of the Reds in the 1990s. Of course, Bowden has denied any wrongdoing. Bill Ladson of MLB.com tells the facts here while Mr. Manzier, Thom Loverro of The Washington Times, continues his coverage here. Loverro's piece includes quotes from a phone interview he conducted with Dominican "agent" involved in the controversey, Basillio Vizcaino.

Let me insert a tad bit of opinion here. Over the past week, it's become apparent to me the coverage of the Nationals in the The Washington Post by beat reporter Chico Harlan has fallen a step behind that of The Washington Times and MLB.com. Combine the slowness with a false report on a Ryan Zimmerman contract hold out and it begins to look as if the coverage is lacking.

Finally, Kevin Crothers posted a comment letting Shedd's Spot know the entire set from Mic Harrison and the High Score's show at the Charleston (S.C.) Public Library is available for viewing on the library's website. You can view it here.
