Rambling observations on books, history, movies, transit, obsolete technology, baseball, and anything else that crosses my mind.

Election Day 2012 -- November 6, 2012
I worked from home today so I could leave at 4 and walk down to the polling place. It was so warm that I didn't wear a jacket. There was a good crowd, but I had to wait just a few minutes for a machine at my precinct.
Update 9pm Pacific: It looks as if President Obama has been reelected. I hope the Republicans don't pull some ugly trick as they did in 2000. Governor Romney is slightly ahead in the popular vote, but that could change as more western states finish counting. I hope racists and reactionaries don't take the popular vote as an excuse to make more trouble.
