Happy first Monday after Daylight Savings has kicked into effect.  Yay?  I'm thinking not for most of you today.

Okay, this is the last full week of the Tampa mayoral and City Council races.  Keep it here to learn all the latest.  You might have missed the fact that the candidates debated Friday morning - so you can read our recap here.  Meanwhile, Bob Buckhorn is airing a new ad denouncing Rose Ferlita's last ad.

What about GOP Presidential politics.  Such as: who the hell is even running?  Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels still hasn't committed, as he spoke yesterday on Meet The Press.

NPR had a horrible week, PR wise, after a video revealed by conservative activist James O'Keefe exposed an NPR fundraiser playing into the stereotypes of what conservatives think is how NPR people think.  Anyway, O'Keefe did a rare television interview on CNN discussing the incident and his style of using deception and hidden cameras.

And are you into college basketball? Actually, I'm not really.  More of an NBA guy (which is why I was terribly bummed when I tuned into ABC's Game of the Week yesterday afternoon and realized after a few minutes that Steve Nash was injured and wouldn't be playing).  But the tournament is now on, and will be at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa this Thursday afternoon.
