Election Eve

This is it, guys. Tomorrow, cast your vote for prez. It matters. I'm part of the election coverage team at my paper. My story: security at polling places nationwide. Hmm.

Blog blather: I'll be so glad when this election season is over, as will most of my reporter colleagues. It's been one hell of a busy slog. And I'll be happy to see the eventual wane of the tons of political web logs out there (wishful thinking?). Few if any are worth reading; most are just a lot of hot air by blowhards with a dearth of knowledge but not of opinion.

Talk about a waste of bandwidth.

That's right, I'm talking to you Instapundit, Josh Marshall, et al. Shut up already.

I also registered today for the Las Vegas Half-Marathon, slated for January 30, 2005. I've got my fiance and one friend so far signed up. Feel free to join us; training for this race is a great way to stay in shape during the bleak winter months. And a sure-fire way for Type A folks like us to blow off some steam.

  1. Oh, calm down about bloggers, Bex. They're just another check on the system, and by virtue of their numbers, they tend to self-correct as a group. I read the NYT and WaPo every morning, but without blogs I would miss about half of what I eventually read, the stuff that gets buried on A18 or only shows up in the international media. You're still the breadwinner, but blogs are the part-time working mom (maybe even your "better half"!).
