Press Talk - Lou Brancaccio
Places often fascinate me. I was thinking about this when I was looking at the 49th Legislative District in Vancouver.

Editor Lou Brancaccio’s Press Talk column appeared Sunday, Aug. 19.
Hello Sunday readers! If you're not hanging with me on Saturdays -- where I usually hang my hat -- you're missing quite the, ah, discussion.
What are the odds … ? And today, for your reading pleasure, I bring you another one: What are the odds in the presidential race? (On Sunday, I lay the odds out on our two county commission races.)
Of all the results we're digesting from Tuesday's election, the real head-scratcher was sitting Clark County Superior Court Judge John Wulle's getting disrobed.
Stuff happens. And sometimes it's almost too strange to comprehend. Really.
Please remember at all times to wear your protective gear. Hey, it’s the political season! If it were a sport, we ain’t talkin’ about table tennis, baby.
