*Breaking News: The Ward 3 Progressives caucused last night and selected Marissa Caldwell to run against David Cain for the seat being vacated by Tim Ashe.
*I ran into ward 7 Democratic city council candidate Eli Lesser-Goldsmith after my radio show on Saturday and did a brief impromptu interview. I hope to have that written up soon, but as a sneak preview I’ll share that Eli says if he’s elected he intends to live-blog directly from city council meetings.
*Speaking of my radio show- it’s on at a new time: Saturdays 11am-12pm on 105.9fm Burlington or streaming live at TheRadiator.org
*Speaking of the Radiator, here’s me and Robert Ready talking about it with Melinda Moulton at channel 17.
*Gaza remains under attack by Israel, with almost a thousand people killed so far.
*Burlington Pol Howard Dean helped win back both houses of Congress and the White House for the Democrats and was then unceremoniously kicked to the curb and shafted. There’s gratitude for you.
*Obama gets sworn in a week from today. I’m taking an hour off work and going down to Nectars to watch with Philip Baruth.
*I’ll turn 36 on Sunday. My Mother would have been turning 72.
