Betting on the mayor


By Steven T. Jones
I'll be the first to admit that I barely understand the complexities of futures markets, but I'm proud to say that I've already made a few hundred bucks off this fall's mayor's race. OK, it isn't real money, and this market for who will be our next mayor is a contrivance of the SF Usual Suspects. Yet it's a fun and interesting new way to handicap the upcoming race. BTW, I'm swimming in Ross Mirkarimi shares in case anybody wants to make me a good offer.
