Heading into the weekend Friday, 07 October 2016 14:15:45 CDT David-Braverman Chicago, Entertainment (0) Wow, my blogging velocity has been crap this month. And here I go, doing it crappier: The U.S. invaded Afghanistan 15 years ago today. How's that working out for us? The Chicago Cubs offered 10 tickets to tonight's game to each member of the city council a while ago. Yesterday an ethics panel ruled that aldermen who took the tickets must attend the game, and the Cubs must announce their presence. Oh, the humanity. Josh Marshall is freaking out over the coming anti-Semitic storm from the Republican party. There will be more later, I'm sure.
