Ted the turkey seeks spotlight at state send-off
ST. PAUL -- Ted is ready for the spotlight. Really ready.
In fact, he is so ready that he escaped from his cage in a dark corner of the governor's reception room Friday, and made a break for the bright television lights. Ted proudly strutted past the gubernatorial podium and into plain sight in a large empty area in front of it, where still cameras clicked, video cameras whirred and reporters scribbled notes that looked like turkey scratching.
