Blue Goals and Sky Arena
She also sent me more spectacular pictures of the Sky Arena in Frankfurt, a light show put on shortly before the World Cup began.
If my information is correct, the Blue Goals pictures were taken by Michael Zapf and are distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. I don't about the Sky Arena pictures; Charming Nina says she got them from a colleague, who didn't know where they came from. So if you know who took the shots and under what terms, let me know.

Blackwell to rule on independent conservative candidacy in OH-15
Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, the Republican nominee for Governor who is notorious for alleged election irregularities under his tenure, will have to make a tie-breaking decision on whether to allow conservative Charlie Morrison to get on the ballot as an independent in the race for Ohio's 15th district, against seven-term incumbent Republican Deborah Pryce and Franklin County Commissioner Mary Jo Kilroy, her Democratic challenger. Morrison, a hard-line conservative who has said that he wouldn't mind a Kilroy victory one bit, is almost certain to weaken Pryce's chances in a three-way race; the GOP opposes his candidacy on the grounds that he has established party affiliation by voting in the Republican primary.
After a tie vote by the Franklin County Board of Elections along party lines, Blackwell will have to make the final decision. Ironically, Blackwell is in a situtation very similar to that of former Ohio Secretary of State Sherrod Brown, now the Democratic nominee for Senate, who ruled in 1984 that Blackwell could run in the Republican primary despite voting in the Democratic primary of 1980.
