Election

Bleh, NBC has predicted Ohio to be won by Bush, though no one else has . . .

Unfortunately, the anti-gay marriage amendment passed in Ohio by a margin of 3-2. As mentioned earlier, Ohio already had a defense of marriage act, but this took it one step further . . . quoting the linked article "The Ohio measure, considered the broadest of the 11 because it barred any legal status that "intends to approximate marriage," gathered equal support from men and women, blacks and whites." Hopefully this will be appealed and over-turned.

I'm going to be up for another hour or so, scanning web sites . . .

Good news

So, voter turnout has gone from ~105 to ~120 million, which is awesome. 17% increase in Ohio. All from NPR.

Another positive is Obama's dominating victory.
