What do butlers, scones, jam, finger sandwiches and quiche say to you?
Well, to the people of Eh? they say “women’s right to vote.” Ninety-three years of it, in fact.
Come celebrate the history of women’s voting at Equali-Tea, hosted Saturday, March 16, by the League of Women Voters Duluth. There will be two seatings — 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. — for a full tea, “Downton Abbey”-style. Retired judge Carol Person will present a short program on the importance of an impartial judiciary.
Reserve by Monday. Call Sally Munger at (218) 728-0711 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

We’re the Eh? desk, and we approve this message.
When it comes to politics, the Eh? desk has heard about defeating an opponent, but “eating” an opponent? Sounds gory. One company, though, makes it far less disgusting with customizable chocolate bars.
Long Island City, N.Y.-based Chocomize gives buyers a choice of placing the likenesses of President Obama or challenger Mitt Romney on a bar.
“What better way of telling a friend or loved one who you support in this year’s election?” the company boasts.
I don’t know, maybe by getting two and enjoying one yourself?
With the Super Bowl still four months out, people need a reason to watch something together and party. So, desperate times call for desperate measures.
U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and University of Minnesota Duluth students who support President Obama are having a presidential debate-watching party at 6:30 p.m. today at UMD’s Montague Hall, Room 80. Montague Hall is at 1211 Ordean Court.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet to let us know if any Romney supporters plan to get together for debate-watching parties in the Duluth area.
