As you are already aware, tomorrow is election day in the US. Your Curmudgeon won’t be bothered by crowded polling places and long lines, because we emerged from our luxurious underground control room last week and voted early. That leaves us free to monitor events throughout the day.
There probably won’t be any news tomorrow about The Controversy between evolution and creationism — there rarely is these days anyway — so this post may have to sustain us until the election activity has subsided and the results are known. Whoever wins, your Curmudgeon won’t gloat or rant. We don’t need to; you already know our preferences. But if you feel like being more expressive, we’ll understand.
Besides the Presidency, there are also elections for a third of the US Senate and for the entire House of Representatives, so the whole shebang is up for grabs. You can also comment on those races if you care to.
This is the perfect time for an Intellectual Free-Fire Zone. As with all our free-fire zones, we’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
Okay, we now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it!
