Boom y'all! Time to vote for a hottie! That’s right: the 39th ward aldermanic race is ‘no boys allowed.’ This cat fight was made possible due to some apparent political scheming, shenanigans and electoral challengez [via good ol’ fashioned Chicago politics and whatnot], resulting in the ousting of our boys Matt and Lyndon from the ballot. Incumbent Marge Laurino and challenger Mary Hunter want you 2 vote for them, but don’t fret, our bros want you 2write them in. No one said 'change would be EZ,’ y'all. Thanks to the Albany Park Post, y'all civic-minded voting types can check out the factz via alder'maniac’ hopeful Robertson’s mad relevant dialog and comments. Will alt-undergounder Lyndon Johnson slam dunk this hat draw? Will the mysterious yet tough-willed Mary Huntress continue to defeat oddz? Will McGill’s be hosting Mrobertson’s victory party? Or do all your base belong to Marge?

Hoje acordei ao sabor da vida
Ao sabor das emoções que outrora
escuras manchas cobriam meu coração
Desfiz as amarras do mal
Passei nas feridas bálsamos de amor
Em meu pranto toalhas macias regadas de sândalos
Enxugavam amenizando as dores da alma que chorava.

Dor profunda vinha a galope
Solidão ativa maltratava meu ser
Vazio… o nada
Solidão… o tudo.
Preenchendo cada espaço dos sonhos
Que morreram em meus pensamentos.
Forças procuro para manter
Esse meu coração que teimava em sofrer
Agora só Luz quero deixar entrar
E sempre ver meu caminho claro a caminhar.
