More proof that the gods have a sick sense of humor

I'm sitting in front of my computer screen, five different websites open, obsessively updating the election results to see what the latest projections are. I decide I'm overdoing it. I need to calm down. Music - that's the thing. Some nice, relaxing jazz. I pop a CD into my stereo system. Press play.

Lester Young plays 'Indiana'

It's going to be a long night.

Your approach to viewing election predictions seems to be my approach to getting a weather forecast on the Web. If I don't like the forecast on one site I just keep surfing the weather sites until I find a forecast I do like.

SB: I empathize

joel: On the contrary - I went from prediction to prediction until I found one that I could be depressed about.

tr: True. Though I have to admit the song running through my head that evening was 'They all Laughed'.
