Weds. fun video: We made Leno

Not that this is necessarily the best way to get national recognition for a local news story, but Jay Leno included a mention of one of our hottest topics in his Monday night monologue.

With a "How bizarre is this?" lead-in, he mentioned the escape of Phillip Paul at the county fair last week. "Apparently he blended in with the carnival ride operators."

If you missed it and are dying to see the whole 1-minute bit, it's at about 6 minutes into this clip. Sorry it's the whole show from, but it didn't make the monologue highlights on the NBC site.

The Spokesman-Review's political team keeps a critical eye on local, state and national politics.
