Next time you’re in Chicago

Somebody who went to school in Chicago told me recently about a game students there play using the CTA map. It’s simple: Which El station would you name your child after? Discuss. (Link to the map is here.)

This game could translate well in London, Paris and probably a few other major cities, but not New York where too many of the stations are named after numbered streets or obvious locations (“Union Square”).

Don’t stop the voting!

I gotta have more campaign. It’s the best thing on TV. It’s the best way to kill time on the Internet. It’s the best reason to buy a newspaper – all those complicated charts and maps of proportional and winner-take-all delegate counts. And now it will go on for months!

Would you rather elect a businessperson or a performer? (I lean toward performers.)

Perfomers:
Mike Huckabee
John McCain
Barack Obama

Businesspeople:
Mitt Romney
Hillary Clinton
