Oh, the Shark, Babe …

Paul Farhi and Mark Leibovich of the Washington Post lead a story about the lack of slow summer news days with this: “Where have all the shark stories gone?”

They should have read the early edition of the San Francisco Chronicle, whose Page 1 headline read: “Shark kills woman in Central Coast attack -- 50-year-old bitten while swimming among sea lions.”

Bobby Darin couldn’t have written it any better.
