Knickers in a bunch 

We're enjoying the run of attention over Ahnuld, but the other thing the Alliance is enjoying today is everyone's attraction to Bettany Hughes. Even Big Daddy is in the hizzouse. So, since I don't watch history during baseball season, I had to see what the fuss was about and followed the Fraters to her picture. Well, I see! But I had seen this face before, on BBC World (this while I was in Skopje, no baseball on the satellite there) advertising for a Great Britons piece on Horatio Nelson. As the Guardian reports, they are using more young women historians there. I watched the Lord Nelson piece, which was hosted by Lucy Moore, who I confused with Ms. Hughes when they said she was a knockout. Gentlemen, there are two. Ms. Moore's presentation of Nelson was captivating.
