November 3rd, 2004



Went to bed early rather than listen to all the blather. When I woke up, the thing that struck me most was the electoral map. My high school history book had the electoral map for every election from John Adams on, and the thing I remember about that is that the electoral vote always seemed oddly scattered. The red states and the blue states were intermingled seemingly at random. No so much with this year's map. Collapse )

I'm trying to maintain an even strain. I am worried that the sky might fall, but I think I'd rather try to see what can be done about keeping it up there rather than running around screaming that it's falling.

Gold Gloves

Woot! Cesar Izturis won his first Gold Glove today, the first Dodger shortstop to do it since Maury Wills in '62. Steve Finley got one, too, his fifth.

Derek Jeter won his first this year. Nobody on the Sox seems to have won one.
