•Wes Wester, a recent addition to the morning show on KWTO-AM, died Sunday evening, apparently of natural causes. He was 48.
•Katherine Harris, the GOP congresswoman who wants to be a U.S. Senator, told a Baptist newspaper that U.S. politics would be much better if only Christians were in office:

•We're looking forward to the publication of a new magazine in Springfield. STIM is set to go to press sometime in September; we'll let you know the precise date when copies hit the street. Yes, we have a piece scheduled for the first issue, but that's not why we're blurbing the mag. The more publications in Springfield, the better.
