The Monday Catchup

same sex marriage

Voters in Maine will decide on whether or not to recognize same-sex marriage tomorrow (via

Good morning! Here’s what you missed over the weekend:

The Lead Story: The most important vote you cast may not be for President. Depending on where you live, you may get to vote on recognizing same-sex marriage, legalizing marijuana or reforming the budget. Ballot issues and referendums are one of the few ways citizens can bypass their legislatures, so vote wisely!

Everything Else:

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorsed President Obama. No word yet on anyone caring.

With their dramatic win over the College of Wooster last weekend, the Kenyon Lords are having their best season since 2005.

A car bomb has killed two and injured a third in Bahrain.

Microsoft to consumers: We know you don’t like Windows Phone 8, but you will.

The Long Read: In 2008, Belgian beer behemoth AB InBev bought Anheuser-Busch, maker of Budweiser. How does a company with an appetite for expansion stay true to local markets?   

The Weather: I hope you enjoyed fall in Gambier, because it’s over.  Expect highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s and 30s throughout the week. Prepare for rain on Wednesday, but the rest of the week should be pleasant.
