You know we're close to Election Day when Sam Katz is getting his own blog. His will launch Monday at PhillyMag.com.
Bring it on, Sam. Bring it on.
Another week down, only six to go between now and Election Day — aka, the day Sam and I are out of jobs as bloggers.
Another week down, only six to go for the heat to get turned up. It's already starting to happen, what with Michael Nutter's anti-John Street ads, Bob Brady and Tom Knox's verbal scrapping, and Dan U-A forced to jump in the middle of the discourse deevolution at Young Philly Politics. "Your mom," says Tom Knox spokesperson Susan Madrak. "No, your mom," says Councilman Jim Kenney.
And Donna Reed Miller keeps a horse in her backyard. Wha? Couldn't close out the week without mentioning that.
Remember to place your votes for the March Madness Final Four. Goode vs. Oh; Nutter vs. Ackelsberg. And then watch some real basketball; unless you're like me and accidentally bought tickets for a documentary Saturday night that starts just as Florida and UCLA tip off.
UPDATE: Brady's lawyers are asking that Knox's appeal be heard by the Supreme Court, rather than Commonwealth Court, to speed up the process.
