No muse this week, or maybe the truth is too much work. Whatever the case, I'm all in favor of that blogging rule that says if you have nothing to say, don't post. Actually, I have quite a few thoughts on the upcoming election, but nothing brilliant or original. So I'm contemplating.

And speaking of contemplation, the picture above reminds me that Mark Brown over at the Sun-Times has been running a great series of articles this week about why he's voting for Tony Peraica for Cook County Board President. The first article appeared Sunday, followed shortly by one on Tuesday and some follow-up letters on Thursday. Since the Cook County Forest Preserves and the Botanical Garden are wholly under the jurisdiction of the Cook County Board of Commissioners, this is a really important election.

Of course, the picture above isn't Wilmette, or the Botanical Garden, or the Forest Preserves, but it does show what could be accomplished with a little creative landscaping and putting a guy in a boat who isn't wearing an orange vest.
