Updated: Dead Man Signing

Hi there!  Just got back from a week long vacation and I'm fiddling around with new podcasting software, hence my absence from traditional blogging.

What the [beep] is up with this?

Has this hit mainstream media yet?

Obviously we've got a little catching up to do...

I'm sure the prosecutors took her testimony seriously, what, with that respectful posture and all...

Werling takes the best pictures, doesn't he?

The dead-man-signing scenario is scandalous, to say the least.  I'd bet the farm that crim charges are coming.  The type of people who associate and support gambling activities are highly ethical, civic minded people, so this whole situation really, really, really surprises me.  Let's ask Dennis Murray how it happened.  I'm sure he has a valid explanation.  Remember when he touted the fact that 17,000 signatures were on the petitions?  Heh heh heh.

Here's a gem:

Mr. James logic goes a little something like this:

"On each page, the petitioner swore that the signatures were valid by signing his name at the bottom -- therefore, no law could've been broken."

Good one, Mr. James.

Email from a reader:

I agree.  My idea would be to ask readers to submit questions for each candidate running.  I'll put my new podcasting/sound editor software to work by asking them the questions (give 'em some tough ones!) and I'll post them on 411.   Fire away in the comments sections.

Is Mr. Eymann still working on securing deposits for the marina district?  If so, there's some good news from the AP on a successfully built condo project in Florida:

Look at that building though! 

It's....

Ahhhhh....

Yeah you are right, all the churches that have the charity poker events at Nautica 6 nights a week must be heathens.  Let's not even mention the elicit bingo nights.

The other day a guy at work started preaching about the evils of casinos and what not, last night he wanted me to buy into some football gambling ticket pool for the Knights Of Columbus.   Ahhh, the irony.

I totally agree with you.  I've always felt uncomfortable around bingo players.  They're almost as creepy as carnies.
