Sometimes there is a strange kind of justice in the universe.

Sometimes there is a strange kind of justice in the universe. A candidate in Oregon, who had promised to require that all schools and libraries be forced to use censorware on their computers, changed his position when he found that his own campaign site was being censored by one of the most popular of the censorware packages.

Ah, schadenfreude. Hoist by his own petard, in't he?

In Oregon, the turnout is expected to be 84%

In Oregon, the turnout is expected to be 84% because everyone in Oregon votes by mail. I bet no other state comes anywhere close to that kind of turnout. This will definitely get the attention of other states; don't be surprised if others do it in two years.
