Apparently there's some sort of election or something coming up

The Red Sox lost!!

No, not really. But this columnist's analogy between baseball and the US elections is spot on. In a nutshell: Is a pennant race decided by the number of runs scored in seven games, or by the number of games won? Is the presidential race decided by the popular vote or by the number of states won in the Electoral College?

Do read it. It's a short and interesting look at why the popular vote isn't the deciding factor. AND it's from a Florida paper, which might tickle your fancy.

I suppose, now that I've posted something political, I'm obliged to share my opinion on the candidates. [sigh] Okay. Fine. As much as I try to avoid these things, I'll do it. What the hell? I like the one who's for family values and against terrorism. I'd vote for that fellow who wants only the best for his country. You know, the one who's going to turn the economy around and do whatever it takes to see that justice comes to those who harm America. The one who is sensitive to the needs of the poor while ensuring that the hard-working middle class gets a fair shake. The one who is FOR education, FOR growth, FOR uhh... fine weather and FOR baseball. Yeah, that one.

I'm sure you'll agree.
That candidate does not exist at present, but we can always hope. ;)
