The [Monday] Papers

Of all the days to get called to jury duty, I get called today.

I hear they have wi-fi down there so we'll see if I can update the site while I wait to see if I get picked or cut.

And I'll get everything pending posted before the polls close tomorrow at the latest but hopefully before they open.

Our Beachwood 2010 Election Guide is almost ready to go, I just don't think it's quite funny enough yet so I want to shine it up.

I have posted Mystery Senate Debate Theater and updated our Political Odds.

(I was unable to find a transcript of a Pat Quinn - Bill Brady debate for a Mystery Debate installment; if you have one, send it along.)

We also have a couple other Election Day pieces in the works - as well as posts in our other sections, of course. So we'll see how the day goes.

Bartender Journalism
Jury duty or no, I'm back behind the bar tonight at the venerable Beachwood Inn. Monday Night Beachwood has turned into a bit of a phenomenon; no promises but last week we set a record! So come on in and help contribute to the next day's Beachwood!

Our Election Eve specials will include Bill Brady Old Styles for $2.50, $1 off Pat Quinn's well, free mob banker pizza (you'll pay later), serial lying pool for a buck, 18 songs on the jukebox for an assessed value of five bucks depending on which law firm you hire to appear before me, and Dr. Dude's lonely reformer pinball.

We open at 5 and close at 2.

This front page from the weekend struck me.

I'm pretty sure Alexi was saying "And then I told the IRS I still worked for the bank!"

The Weekend Desk Report
By Natasha Julius

Not in the mood to party this Halloween? Stay home and tell everyone you dressed as an "El" train.

Market Update
Is it still considered outsourcing when we ship our problems to Americans overseas? Or is it just sound business practice?

Electioween 2010
We'd be remiss here at the Weekend Desk if we didn't note the approach of the most terrifying holiday of the year - Electioween, wherein every trick is its own treat and every choice is wrong.

Warsaw 3D
In the weeks leading up to Tuesday's gubernatorial election, polls showed neither major-party candidate holding much of a mandate. In fact, some analysts project either candidate would be defeated in a run-off with Lech Walesa's moustache.

The Abyss
Meanwhile, the race to replace the next sitting governor of Illinois took a bizarre turn as debate centered on what should be taught in Illinois public schools. For the record, the correct answer to that question is nothing.

Nightmare on Clout Street
Of course, just like in all great horror stories, the real threat is already inside the House.
