"The wandering scholars were bound by no lasting loyalties, were attached by no sentiment of patriotism to the states they served and were not restricted by any feeling of ancient chivalry. They proposed and carried out schemes of the blackest treachery."-C.P. Fitzgerald.

A Hamburger on Tuesday.... 

Smoke 'em if you got em.

In a reprise of Milwaukee's famous "smokes for votes" scam from the 2000 election, a hamburger chain in the city has decided to give out free hamburgers to those who vote and get the "I Voted" sticker as proof.

I liked the idea of handing out a pack of cancer sticks to voters that the Wisconsin Democratic Party came up with during the runup to the Bush-Gore contest. It seemed much more appropriate to the efforts of an urban political machine.
