Purple Country

I'm trying to remember in my glee that 53% isn't the same as 100%. :)

Democratic NY

According to unofficial results, Democrats captured 32 out of the 62 seats in the Senate. The shift marks the end of an era for New York Republicans, whose control of the Senate had come to depend on a bloc of senators, some in their 70s and 80s, who had put off retirement to help preserve the party's majority. --



So, the Democrats are in full control of the legislative and executive branches in New York State. Personally, I am hoping they legalize gay marriage, something that has previously passed the Assembly and has heretofore stalled in the Senate. Gov. Patterson is willing to sign such a bill. We'd be the first state to postively enact such legislation, instead of having courts make the call. A big, big, deal.

In general, it is now up to them to figure out how to cut the state budget by billions of dollars. I am not sure if they are up to the task or not, but I'll give them the benefit time to see if they can.

Voted (Barack +1)

The line wasn't bad at all. Our old school mechanical voting booths are actually pretty awesome. The only bad part of the experience was that I almost missed the referendum above the political offices.

Not sure what I'll be doing tonight, but probably will be at the Erie County Democratic Headquarters with (e:James) once he's done working.

If Virginia and Florida are both called for Obama before 8pm, it's going to be a huge night for him. Otherwise we may be up very, very late :)

Don't forget to vote, even if it's not for my guy, Obama.

Synchronized Debating



(from keep an eye out for 'my friends' at the end of the clip)

On a side note, I hardly know what to do with myself while I'm on vacation. I've already checked in with work twice this morning to see if they need me. Sigh...

My goal today is to finish learning map/reduce in CouchDB views, maybe posting that here will be incentive to finish it :)
