    So good to see you last night!

    I’m going to miss Mayor McCheese. I’ve yet to see an acceptably entertaining graphic to represent the Mayor-elect.

    Not a going away party for him, but a GO AWAY party.
    I expect that he would drop in, make some sort of speech based on some sort of alternate reality, and directed at some unseen people located about a foot or so over the heads of the audience, then leave. He may even announce a project or two that has absolutely no hope of ever coming to fruition – just for old times sake. And the CJ will shed a sentimental tear, dreaming wistfully of future vice-guvner fluff pieces.
