Hope this weather holds all weekend, and with college football starting up again, life is good:
- The obvious winners are Paul de la Garza's time in the Middle East with Gen. Abizaid; Troxler reminds us who voted for the 2003 phone bill; Bo Michaels' scummy attacks on Jack Day continue, led by his consultants The Mallard Group, the same guys whose work got Judge Renke thrown off the bench earlier this year; and Ronda's nowhere to be seen on the campaign trail. Notice how all are in the Times; nothing great in the Tribune news columns, and you'd wonder if they knew the election is Tuesday at all.
- One Trib recommendation: its editorial about Kevin White, based (with credit given) on reporting done by the Times. This getting beat in its own backyard has got to get editor Janet Weaver cheesed off.
- Sunday Florida editorial roundup.
(Disclosure: I worked briefly in a judicial campaign for Jack Day in 2004.)
