    Curses, curses 

    Last night, Sen. John Kerry didn't even want to talk about the Curse of the Bambino as the Boston Red Sox were on the way to ending it.

    Asked about it, he put his finger to his lips in a shushing gesture. "The curse. The curse - I don't even want to say it. I don't want to say anything about it. Just hang on."

    It was a happier Kerry this morning outside his hotel in Toledo, Ohio. Violating the iron political rule of NO HEADGEAR, EVER, the senator wore a Red Sox cap, turned to reporters, raised his arms and said, "YEAH." He added, "Unbelievable. I woke up this morning - Is it really true? It's so great."

    In six days, we'll see how he does with the Curse of the Duke - Mike Dukakis, that is, the last Massachusetts lefty to get this far in politics.
