Is Jon Huntsman leaving the GOP race?

The bunch is getting smaller as Bachmann, Perry and Romney keep the focus.  Huntsman was one I could have been less worried by. He didn’t really sound Republican.

For instance, this quote he made on Twitter:

“To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.

I’d just call him NOT STUPID… after all, Perry  dismissed evolution as a “theory that’s out there” and Bachmann expressed skepticism of evolution at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans last June.

There are very nice people in the world…

Grocery shopping at Martin’s in Hagerstown this afternoon, I accidentally lost my iPhone… while I was loading or unloading my shopping cart it apparently slipped out of my shirt pocket into the empty cart and I didn’t realize it.

Halfway back to Shepherdstown, I reached for my phone to check the time and it was gone. I was really upset.

I pulled the car over to the side of Interstate 81 and searched it top to bottom… went through the grocery bags… looked between the front seats. It wasn’t there.

I turned around and headed back to the Hagerstown Martin’s. I asked at the  management desk if anyone had turned in my iPhone…and lo and behold there it was.

Someone very nicely turned it in and I was extremely lucky to get it back. As my wife pointed out, back in New York or even in Hartford, I never would have seen it again.
