No word yet of whether the bartenders have complied, but Nick sure looks happy:. How about that one? Run by incompetent nincompoops.
The Ship of Fools
Ever think of that? At this party we have two council members who could have trounced Nickels. His stripper ban is so silly it makes me think he goes out of town for lap dances.

We've got to figure out how to get it up to you guys.
We've got to figure out how to get it up to them! Savage broke in: "Jan, we'll send someone down to pick it up. You don't have to run it up here yourself. Savage told her that Amy Jenniges was on her way, platter in hand. Check back here for more updates on the cake.

No on spokesperson Andrew Villanueve says "The results are looking better than we'd ever hoped. They don't have the complete numbers, so they don't want to call the race, but they're optimistic.
