I know this site has died, and I take most of the blame for the CarlBlog going dormant, but this is my attempt to make ammends. Here are two issues of the Carl 09. I would have put the other four issues not yet on the internet, but security won’t let me into the Carl office and someone from facilites has already swiped the key.

New Executive Editors will no doubt do better than I have done to make this site real.

We’re back with the first magazine of cheery winter season! Make sure to check out the cover because it looks a lot better in pdf form. Eventually, I hope that we’ll master the fine art of lightening every picture and graphic on the computer that it comes out as pretty in print as it does on the screen, but for now enjoy wowing at it on the COMPUTER!

From the Political Action Committee Citizens for a Better Northfield If Brendon Is Elected Otherwise It’ll Be Four Or However Many Years of the Same: I don’t know how serious Brendan is for mayor, but his website has an aesthetic all its own. I’d post a picture from it, but it might give one of our readers a seizure. And I don’t want that hanging over my head.
