Welcome to the race. And I look forward to hearing more. Though I would recommend holding he event in Brookhaven. Also most people who voted didn't have an allegiance or alliance with either of the groups. And while I am constantly in disagreement with HamBurger's posts and often the style, I'll admit I probably agree with the position of "not voting" not being a badge of honor.

I assume she will relinquish her writing for the Crier. She is a good person, knowledgeable and smart. While not in agreement with 100% of her past positions on neighborhood issues I do think she would make a good council person.

"I do think she would make a good council person."---Eric Coming from a fellow publicist, very noble of you.

"Mr. don Gabacho, ever find yourself on the upper deck when the old cop patrolling the parking lot came up to address situations out of control and you had to jump off the deck?"---Hamburger No. Since we weren't going to buy anything we didn't park to use up a space. A fellow (not Nipsy Russel) with a crazy hat made it pretty clear not to the first and only time we used a space to order nothing but a single order of onion rings. Thereafter, whenever we showed up we were definitely tracked by a fellow in a prison-yard like conning tower. Somehow a very friendly place even when you bought something, gulped it down on the spot and used your own carry-out trash bag. Right? To reciprocate for the chili recipe, I'll try and figure out what the recipes for what turned out to be pig blood sausage, minced (chicken) eyeball tacos, Cabrecita (which I thought would be a mound of shredded goat meat but turned out to be a baby goat's opened skull to expose the edible brain with facial muscles and eyeballs still attached) and "Sopa de huevos" (mountain oyster soup).
