What to expect 

I'm having trouble with several Hosting Matters sites, which could be load or DNS attacks or who knows. Anyway, I'll be leaving STC around 5pm for the station, and while I won't liveblog like Ed -- as a data guy, I'll be copying and recording returns as best I can -- I will post materials when I get a chance and have something useful to say.

Read Hugh. In economics we often talk about the signal-to-noise ratio in prices. Same's true with polls. If you don't want people to know what they say, you generate loads of noise and disrupt signals wherever you can. My suspicion is, that's what's going on right now. Who would be interested in lowering signal-to-noise? And why?

Exhale. Breathe in, let your face smile. Exhale again. Now go get your friends to vote -- that's the only action that matters between now and tonight.
