By the Way, the Governor of South Carolina Has Gone Missing


Mark Sanford has been missing for several days, and even his wife, Jenny, doesn’t know where he is. The Republican governor of South Carolina’s staff won’t disclose his location, but said he needs to take time to “recharge” after his failed bid to reject federal stimulus money. Mrs. Sanford explained, more simply, that he’d said he needed some time away from their children. [AP] Update: Okay, so Sanford apparently called his office after the AP report. They say they now know where he is (somewhere near Atlanta), but before they hadn’t heard from him in four days, and all his phones had been shut off. Wife: still unconcerned.
