This final note today, spotted in the pages of the Washington Post. You know how corporate sponsors of big events can get touchy, about things they worry might detract from the brand?

Well, so this happened. Aflac, the insurance company, was throwing a party down in Tampa at the GOP convention — with a key dietary restriction.

Any guesses? Maybe this’ll help.

Yeah, no duck.
