Hi there, big fella

Stunning Huckabee sex scandal shocker from Fox News!
Good thing he didn't make those remarks in front of any undercover officers in any Midwestern airports.
And in other developments on the Hed Ambiguity Front, The State checks in with this three- headed monster.
What's illegal: The drugs, the sales or the custom? Film at 11.

From the story:
"The sale of prescription drugs in 'tiendas,' or groceries, is common in Latin America, and authorities say Hispanic entrepreneurs are bringing the custom to South Carolina."

Why, I wonder, are they singling out groceries for the translation treatment? Is it even necessary? I believe I'm catching a whiff of orientalism. While we're at it, I think "tienda" connotes "mom-and-pop store," as opposed to a Dillons/Harris Teeter/Safeway/what have you megastore.
