Blackwater Employee Ends Congressional Bid
An employee of Blackwater USA, maker of Barbie and the Nintendo Wii, has curtailed his bid as a Republican for Indiana's 2nd District House seat, according to the South Bend Tribune. Despite Blackwater's reputation for heroic feats of derring-do, Chris Minor of Kokomo (he's from a Beach Boys song??) has recognized that "The vital work of providing intelligence analysis for our country's diplomatic efforts in Iraq demands my full attention."
