A full-page, 6-column (continuation) headline in today's Boston Globe (B5; article begins on B1:

"Despite lost 50-foot joint, Stein backers carry on".

Beats T---p's small (7-inch) hands hands-down.

For those who don't know who Jill Stein is -- perhaps 99% of the country -- she is the Green Party's presidential nominee.  When her supporters found little attendance at a rally in "the parking lot of an empty office park" in Hempstead, Long Island, they walked off to a hopefully-greater-audience location.  "Cannabis activist Todd Hinden ...  was on the phone with his compatriots and getting irked: They were supposed to demonstrate with a 50-foot inflatable joint, but where were they?"

(Why featured in the Boston Globe?  Stein is a Lexington, Mass., physician.)
