Well dear readers, this is not only just a regular late night open thread, it's the open thread for the next two weeks as Johnny is off on vacation to go hobnob with his fellow wizards. We realize what a tremendous disruption to your daily routines this is so we'd like to ask both of our regular readers to be patient and do take this time to discover new corners of the interwebs. Please though, if the mayor gets drunk again and gets into another fight PLEASE use this thread for the blow by blow action. Links to pictures wouldn't hurt our feelings ya know.
Johnny's driving back to Michigan (yes, he's horribly afraid of flying and drives everywhere) for a very special and much awaited anniversary party waaaaay up on Mackinac Island and then kicking around the lower peninsula to enjoy family and friends and revel in the fall colors. If some of you have never been to Mackinac Island, you're missing a true gem of Americana. With a beautiful view of the mighty Mackinac Bridge, the island allows no cars, only bikes and horses. After dealing with auto traffic in Jersey City and NYC it will truly be a cathartic three days on the island.
So, all of you be good, Johnny will drive safely, and we'll meet back up here in a couple weeks. Be there, Aloha!
Peace, Love, Understanding,
