  • Joe Soucheray: Dangerous heat during the Fair? We merely laugh and ask for more grease.

    Somebody decided that about 2 cents worth of elasticized white cloth worn on the forearms would keep a body cool, so, sure enough, people are now walking around the Fair with what appear to be a kind of Civil War bandage on their arms.
