-- Ed Patru, the spokesman for Linda McMahon's campaign, fired back at the Rob Simmons campaign for an article earlier this week in the Manchester Journal Inquirer. "Linda has created nearly 600 jobs in Connecticut and her company has been an enormous tax base for the state," he said. "Simmons' strength isn't in creating jobs. It's in handing out taxpayer-funded checks and federal pork to people and then patting himself on the back for a job well done. I think before he gives small business owners any more lectures, he should remember that it's job creators like Linda that have made it possible for Rob Simmons to be a career politician with government pensions."

-- During Tuesday night's SmackDown! taping in Buffalo, one of the TV screens in the front atrium was showing the goings-on in the arena, including Kofi Kingston and Teddy Long rehearsing their segment, the women going through their match and Jack Swagger working on his segment.
