A Tale of Two Alexes

First, the bad: Alex Rodriguez was busted for steroids. Surprising? Not really. But it's still a pretty big story. President Obama found himself fielding a question about the steroid scandal from the White House press corps during his primetime news conference tonight. The President's take on scandal? It sets a really bad example for baseball's youngest fans. Agreed.

Now for the good: This is old news, but ... Alexander McQueen is coming to Target! (Target, by the way, is one of my favorite stores and my perennial "happy place.") As part of Target's new Designer Collaborations Initiative (not to be confused with the GO International line, which celebrates young, up-and-coming designers), McQueen is offering a collection of funky pieces, all priced under $129.99. This could get interesting. I'm even considering braving the crazy crowds at the Target's downtown Manhattan McQ Market this weekend to check out the goods.
