Where the hell have I been?

Well, here's a hint. Mr. The Place Where We Live and I have been out having a BLAST of the "wish you were here" variety.



We also signed a contract on a home in a ward other than the fighting 43rd. It's a consuming process with inspections and all that, so I've missed a few of the main (in) fights and televisiony things going on between Michele Smith & Vi Daley.

What have you heard lately? Who won the tv debate?

Is Michele buying too many drinks and breaking all kinds of rules? Is Vi just too entrenched with her cronies to ever ask her community what it thinks? Have you early voted?

Can either candidate use the word "lies" any more often without needing to buy a vowel?

Stay tuned. We're baaaack.

UPDATE: I should probably clarify that this isn't really a picture of us. I would never marry a guy who would wear a necklace like that.

Didn't see the TV debate, but went to the debate at St. Paul's last night. Michele Smith whooped up on Vi Daley. I felt sorry for Vi--she fumbled, rehearsed the same old stuff, was inarticulate, and demonstrated, it seems, exactly what Michele Smith has been accusing: that Vi is in the pocket of developers and has no real plan besides "I'll ask the community groups." My vote, for the issues and for an alderman who can vision and speak passionately and clearly, goes to Ms. Smith.

After I posted the photo, I tried to find the bra supplier. You know, I thought you'd want to know. No luck. Maybe a Googler out there can tell us.

helen meier of wilmette has donated $105,000 to smith's campaign! anyone know why this woman is so interested in the 43rd ward, its aldermanic runoff and why she likes smith sooo much?

Congratulations on your upcoming move. I'm also considering getting out of here. Lincoln Park is a cold unfriendly place with far too many opiniated jerks. Just look at the two creeps that made it into the runoff election.

Click my name to see aldertrack's listing of candidate financing reports. Helen Meier of Wilmette, I believe, is a running club friend of Smith's. Google her for more info. Daley, luckily, receives the vast majority of her money from regulated businesses who appreciate "favors". Even our alleged local Swift Boat backer sent some cash her way!

thanks for the link to the finance page...interesting all the developers money given to Mrs Daley...don't think it's going to work though...it's "BYE BUY VI"....
I'm hearing that Vi is VERY nervous...and she should be!
