WHICH REMINDS US OF A STORY...:

A Tea Party Patriots overhaul (KENNETH P. VOGEL, 9/20/10, Politico)

A leading tea party group that is emblematic of the movement’s scrappy grassroots sensibilities – and its problems raising money and building infrastructure – has received a major infusion of cash and added some big conservative names to its board.

The Tea Party Patriots, a coalition of more than 2,500 local tea party groups, is set to announce at a Tuesday morning press conference at the National Press Club that it secured “significant new funding” of a yet-to-be disclosed amount from a yet-to-be named donor, said spokesman Randy Lewis.


...when the Astrodome was first built it had a grass field and glass panels in the roof to allow sunlight in. Of course, it turned out that ballplayers couldn't pick up fly balls against the glass panes, so they had to be painted black. The grass promptly died and thus was born the first synthetic field.
