A reader writes, “I’m thinking this [press advisory below] should be interpreted as Sparks helping Bright get some positive press close to an election. Interesting move.”

In follow-up, the reader writes, “If Bright wants to run for Congress (Everett) in 2010, which many think he does, he’ll need to post strong numbers in his re-election. I think that’s why Sparks is helping out.”
