The HBO series Six Feet Under had its series finale, and the message boards Monday morning were lit up with the discussion of two brief shots featuring an African woman holding a basketball.

The State Fair rocked, because we went at it with the attitude you’re supposed to have at the fair: well-funded, energetic, curious, and willing to stand in line for a while.
