This week brought us the latest episode of a certain reality show in which semi-famous people compete not to get voted off by dancing around, falling down, and generally making fools of themselves. I'm talking, of course, about the GOP debate in Las Vegas, which featured an intense, Spanish-flavored tango performed by Mitt Romney and Rick Perry (Romney, with his firm grip on Perry's shoulder, was clearly doing the leading). Elsewhere, in landscapes as disparate as Zanesville, Ohio and Sirte, Libya, armed gunmen hunted down and killed their prey -- the wild beasts on the run from the Muskingum County Animal Farm generating far more sympathy than the deposed (and despised) former dictator, whose death did nothing to answer the vexing question of how to actually spell his name, leaving obit writers everywhere to choose between Gaddafi, Qaddafi, Kadafi, Gadhafi, Gadafy, and the Man with the Golden Gun.
