Several Friends have e-mailed, wondering if Matt Pulle will be reporting from county elections HQ tonight as he did back when we had 11 candidates from which to choose. Yup -- and, from the sound of it last night 'round the office, Mr. Schutze will also join in the fun beginning at, oh, 7:01 p.m., when we'll post the results from early voting. So join us back here tonight; you bring the ice, we'll bring the bourbon. Even if Mercury is in retrograde, which, we hear, could be disastrous. --Robert Wilonsky
