What's that you say? You're looking for some quality (free) entertainment tonight and you're unclear where you stand on April's election over the St. Louis earnings tax?

Well, do I have an event for you!

Swing by the Old Post Office (815 Olive) at 6:30 p.m. for a forum on the earnings tax hosted by the League of Women Voters of St. Louis. Panelists include Mayor Francis Slay; city comptroller Darlene Green; Nancy Cross of the SEIU; and Mark Montovani, CEO of St. Louis-based NSI Marketing.

Yours truly (joined by Post-Dispatch editorial scribe Eddie Roth and UMSL poli-sci professor Andrew Glassberg) will serve as respondents asking the panelists questions.

Former Governor Bob Holden will give closing remarks. See you there.
