I just finished watching the three-way Republican debate on WTTW-channel 11.
My colleague political writer Scott Fornek is doing the heavy lifting and writing the news story about the matchup between Bill Brady, Ron Gidwitz and Jim Oberweis right now. Judy Topinka opted out of the joint appearence.
I'll handle some of the lifestyle stuff. Host Phil Ponce played the theme of the movie ``Brokeback Mountain'' and asked the three men running for governor if they could identify the music.
Well, they could not.
None of them had seen the movie about an affair between two ``cowboys.''
And on another cultural front, Ponce asked the three if they owned Ipods. Gidwitz said no, Oberweis has two and Brady said he mostly listens to books on tape.
How did they do? Should Topinka have been there?
On Friday, your blogger Sweet will discuss the upcoming Tuesday primary on ``Chicago Week in Review'' on WTTW hosted by Joel Weisman. The panel includes my colleague, Mary Mitchell, Dick Kay, political editor at NBC 5 News, and Jim Litke , a columnist at the Associated Press.
