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.”
