The date of the election: June 5.
Freeze-framing on the newspapers is always a hoot. There are a couple of howlers in Trilogy, I think - instead of the local murder, the article has to do with construction at LAX. Whoever had the thankless task of preparing the prop newspapers clearly didn't anticipate DVD technology revealing the fact that they only replaced headlines, not articles.
School's out! Remember, behind every loose ball there is a running child.
