  45. - Anonymous - Monday, Jan 7, 13 @ 8:01 am:

    Rich, I have two questions:

    1) How did I miss “the memo” that CapFax was open yesterday into today? (Now it feels like it’s Tuesday and I’m two days behind.)

    and

    2) In the photo, left side: are those a) two more Illinois flags, b) white flags, and/or c) white boxer shorts being raised as white flags?


  46. - Anonymous - Monday, Jan 7, 13 @ 8:03 am:

    And if the answer to 2 is either b or c, were we invaded by Missouri, or some other state, over the weekend?
