Well, it’s looking like Ohio and Florida will both go to Bush, putting the presidency out of reach for Kerry. I haven’t seen a poll site yet that got all the key states right; neither right-leaning nor left-leaning. I hope all the polls are wrong enough that Kerry comes out ahead when all the counting is truly complete, but that sounds like a pipe dream just at the moment.
Poor Tom Brokaw sounds like he wants to cry, describing the nearly-lost cause of the Kerry campaign. At the moment, Kerry would have to win every remaining state, including Nevada, and that just ain’t going to happen.
But what I just can’t comprehend is Florida going to Bush! Didn’t the democrats in that state learn anything in 2000?
And what about the “nation’s breadbasket” – what part of “giant deficit”, “incipient draft”, and “disingenuous foreign policy” do those people not understand? Never mind, it’s a rhetorical question. The very people who vote for Bush are those who will suffer the most under his policies.
Bunch of sheep, those folks.

Here’s an album with pictures from Robert Pirsig’s original 1968 cross-country motorcyle journey (as told in “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”) plus photos from more recent re-creations of the trip. It’s cool to see how closely the actual people/places are to what I had always pictured in my mind’s eye!
