Laying down the law of ping pong

At about1 a.m.this Saturday, agroup
offreshmenguyswas playingpingpong
in the Baits I recreational center.
They were so consumed with
their heated game, in fact, that none
of them noticed the visitor who had
quietly joined them. Eventually, their
concentration was interrupted when
the visitor's gruff voice said, "You're
not supposed to serve like that."
The guys all turned only to find a
police officer.In an authoritative tone,
the officer explained that the serve
was illegal. The ball had to be tossed
at least six inches into the air before it
was hit with the paddle, he said.
"I used to serve like that also, but
I joined a ping pong league, and they
told me it was wrong," the officer said.
He went on to explain that he was
playing with the big boys now, and
couldn't do cut serves anymore. It
was a lesson the boys took to heart.

Dean won't seek second
term as Dems chairman 0

Former presidential
candidate known for
'50-state strategy'
WASHINGTON (AP) - Demo-
cratic National Committee Chair-
man Howard Dean plans to step
down from his post when his term
expires in January, wrapping up a
tenure in which the party heavily
invested in all 50 states for a pay-
off that helped elect Barack Obama
president.
Dean, who was briefly his party's
presidential front-runner in 2004,
was elected DNC chairman in 2005
and has long vowed to serve only
one, four-year term. At a postelec-
tion news conference in Washing-
ton last week, Dean indicated again
that he didn't plan to stay on, aides
said on Monday.
President-elect Obama, a Demo-
crat, was expectedtochoose Dean's
successor. Traditionally, the presi-
dent selects the national chairman
of his own party.
Dean was the architect of a
"50-State Strategy," investing
money and staff in every state
- including those where Demo-
crats had long fared poorly - to
build party infrastructure and
lay the groundwork for elector-
al gains. The Obama campaign,

working with DNC organizers in
all 50 states, won several states
that had not elected a Democrat-
ic president in decades, includ-
ing Virginia, North Carolina ar4d
Indiana. f
State party chairs were general-
ly thrilled with Dean's approach,
while some Democratic leaders in
Washington complained early on
that the party's money would be
better spent helping candidates
who had a real chance of win-
ning.
The disagreement broke into
open warfare in 2006, when Dean
clashed over money and strat-
egy with New York Sen. Chuck
Schumer and Illinois Rep. Rahns
Emanuel, who ran the party's suc-
cessful effort to win back control
of Congress. Last week, Emanuel
accepted the job of White House
chief of staff in an Obama adminT
istration.
Some of Dean's most vocal
detractors were former advisers
to President Clinton. They includg
strategist James Carville, who once
calledDean's leadership attheDNC
"almost Rumsfeldian in its incom-
petence."
During Dean's tenure, Demo-
crats regained control of Congress
in 2006, and captured the presidegi-
cy in 2008 while increasing their
numbers in the House and Senate.
