How about those Cubs? Never a doubt, right?

I had picked them to get swept in three games by the Nationals so you see how smart I am, although I think the Nationals blew that series more than the Cubs won it.

Last week we answered a question about how devoid of rain Champaign-Urbana had been in September (.84 of an inch all month). Someone was paying attention because since then we've received close to 2 inches.

Glad to help.

Back to the 'bag after a refreshing week of travel in beautiful New England. I know it's not the Kickapoo Rail Trail but if you ever get a chance, ride the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Wow.

This week's mailbag has a little bit of everything: whimsy, social concerns, athletic history, consumer issues, local history, infrastructure questions and even agronomy. And the usual array of bits of curiosity.

We weren't able to get to a lot of mailbag questions this week because of the press of daily news. We'll attempt to address the backlog next week.

It's another — mostly — infrastructure week in the mailbag. And there's some local, state and national history too.
