Worcester election items
I’m really impressed at the job Scott Zoback did liveblogging the election for Worcester Magazine. Much more about the internet & the election on this Friday’s podcast.
Here’s a chart of the results, which I originally posted at Worcester Activist.
Your Pettys and Rushtons rocketed up since the prelims; not so for your Colemans, Perottos, Rosses, and Irishes.
The T&G screws up again
Good grief: “A chart in today’s Telegram & Gazette had incorrect totals for Ms. Ross, Mr. Irish and Mr. Coleman.”
They also screwed up in the prelims.
Worcester and LaRouche
A few weeks, back, at the City Council meeting about Darfur, some young followers of Lyndon LaRouche were waiting around, but didn’t get a change to speak. I think they wanted to present something about banking or mortgage reform. According to Crooked Timber and Washington Monthly, the organization is in the midst of a collapse.

Our school chum Niniane Wang on college differences
From her blog:
Me: [after recounting the conversation] “Do you have these conversations with your Stanford alum friends? Like, who’s on the run, who was dealing acid, who is a man of the cloth?”
My brother: “No.”
Me: [pause] “I’m glad I went to Caltech.”
