I agree with you, Alfred. In addition to my comfort that God is in control, I also firmly believe that these United States will withstand whomever is the president the next four years. We've had some great presidents and some total losers and the union has weathered it all. (That isn't to say I don't care - I DO care who wins and I think it may affect us significantly in our lives. But, since this really isn't a political discussion list, I'll let it go at that.) I know one thing - I'll sure be GLAD to see the end of this contentious campaign!

Southern California's westernmost points are all to the east of Oregon's coastline and the westernmost points of Oregon, Washington and California are at pretty similar longitudes. There are parts of Oregon and Washington that are farther west than San Francisco (which is is about 122 degrees 23') for instance. The westernmost point of the three states seems to be south of Crescent City (which is at about 124 degrees) but there are plenty of places on the Oregon and Washington coasts that are further west than 123 degrees. San Diego is at 117 degrees 52'. Best, Edward

My Dearest Ginny, The world isn't flat! Roseburg is at 123 degrees 18 min. West Longitude. San Luis Obispo is at 120 degrees 4 minutes West Longitude. Roseburg is further west! Guess what! Prineville Oregon is at 120 degrees 50 min. West Longitude. So Prineville is even a little west of good old San Luis Obispo! Les P.S.

I'm thinking libel has no particular affiliation and it prostitutes the process of free speech... Regards from someone who'd like to see change - on many fronts.
<Snip> Yesirree, John's cronies - an mine, too!...don't forget my cronies - have so legislated free speech and redefinged truth that we control...well, let's see...what do we control? Not the presidency and the executive branch, certainly. Not the Senate or the House. Not the Judiciary or the Supreme Court. The Armed Forces?...no...no... Wait! We control a huge political and social group through religio...no, that's not us, either. You know, it's unclear to me just exactly how us liberals have undermined western civilization and destroyed freedom. I *know* we've done it, because the right keeps crediting us...I'm just darned if I know how we accomplished it! Oh, yeah...I remember! It's through control of the Liberal Media! Whew! What a relief. I knew that was going to bother me all day if I couldn't remember.

I wasn't gonna get into this, but it's too juicy to pass up. I consider myself very liberal, especially re; free speech - Lenny Bruce is/was my hero. I abhor ALL attempts to stifle it, be they from the right or left. I don't think either side is free from this foul practice.... As long as it's just speech hurled my way, I can take it, and give it. I really have no patience with people who feel the need to "protect" others from the "evilsayers" in the name of political correctness or "patriotism". I consider myself to be always correct and always patriotic. When I taught Jr HS, the kids had an expression they used when someone expressed displeasure with what they said. "Deal with it...", they would say. My sentiments, exactly. BTW, the above rant was brought to you by a delightful Malabar Gold Americano. I don't know whether it's the new crotchless PF or my new surf method, but I've been really enjoying just about every pull for the last couple of weeks.. A new coffee shop opened nearby and they seem to be wanting to do it right. They roast their own, the prices are reasonable, considering the location and the prices at $B, and he knows about Coffeegeek. The barista claims he can make 5 different types of latte art. He is suspicious about the chopped PF, so I will bring in mine to see if there is a difference, or if it's all in the head, as he claims... Ciao, Angelo Lontano de culo mio, fata che se voule....

Per Gene's suggestion, I did check out cnn.com. They have an option where you can track 20 races of your choice (national down to state-wide ballot measures). Have to create an account, but that's what throw-away email addys are for. BBC.com has good info. Nothing to report yet, but it's concise without all the flash and dash of CNN. Plus according to the BBC (does this settle an argument on who's farther left?): "The last votes of the night will be cast in Alaska, where polling stations will close at 0600 GMT on Wednesday."
