The front page of The Daily Planet. I won't bore you by going into my thoughts on newspaper design, but this front page is pretty damn ugly. The main hed reads (in two different type sizes) "LEX LUTHOR TO RUN FOR STATE SENATE." We pan back to reveal the Kent kitchen, where Bo Duke is holding the newspaper. He moans that it's not bad enough that Lex owns half the state -- now he wants to tell people how to run their lives. Jealous? Seeking a higher platform for your home-spun platitudes? MamaKent bookmarks her page in a book she's reading and tells Bo that she doesn't want him to risk his health running for office like Tom Wopat suggested. Bo tells her he feels fine. Physically, where it counts. MamaKent says that the election is in January (whaaa?), and that putting together a campaign that quickly will be hard on Bo's heart. He says that the stress of watching Lex get sworn in will be even worse. MamaKent complains that if he runs, their personal lives will be dug into. She asks what'll happen if people find out Clark's secret. Clark, walking through the door, says he thinks someone already has. He says that someone ran him off the road on his way back from Metropolis. "Oh, by the way, I owe you guys another truck," he doesn't add. Bo asks whether Clark knew who it was. Clark says it took off before he could identify a driver. Clark says that someone called him and said, in a weird voice, "I know who you are." This is very important, Clark: did they say if they know what you did last summer? MamaKent sighs. How is she supposed to get to work now? Bo tells Clark to stick to his normal routine and not to do anything unusual. Stick to the straight and narrow. Don't be a deviant. Er, I mean, don't deviate...from the hetero, er, I mean here-to-there comings and goings. But without the comings. Boy, this doesn't sound right at all. Bo suggests that "these people" are going to be watching Clark's every move. He suggests that Clark not give them anything to gawk at. Keep your shirt on, farmboy. Dramatic music plays. I guess "gawk at" is a natural break for this show.
