Jail house rock. The latest YouTube sensation are musical dance numbers, such as “Thriller” and “YMCA” as performed by orange-clad inmates at a Philippines prison.
We’re all for people rehabilitating their lives, but this does not bode well for future auditions of FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance.”
Don’t call us. You might be surprised to learn that politicians, unlike telemarketers, aren’t covered by rules for the do-not-call list. You can block calls from siding salesmen but not from anyone seeking your vote or donation.

Bring your knitting. The state Department of Transportation tonight begins its repaving of a 1-mile stretch of northbound I-5 in Seattle, work that, with the closing of up to three lanes, could cause a 30-mile jam for the rest of the month.
