Chicago actor Jimmy Carrane knows how to work it. First, he talked his way onto Eight Forty-Eight. Then he talked his way onto our airwaves for a full-hour Studio 312 special this coming Monday. And now, he has broken into the big time - he'll be posting on this blog over the next few days. It turns out he was doing some research using "the google" and found some articles about how "weblogs" are a great way to reach new audiences. Jimmy, however you found us - you had us at hello. Good luck, Jim - and thanks for the crisp twenty.
