Fear v. Fear

Posted By on Tue, Nov 4, 2008 at 5:56 AM


Both sides play on fear of the other as the presidential election rolls to its conclusion today, Brummett writes. That's not a particularly hopeful recipe, is it? Thinking about it now, I realize that "change," a powerful word to many is also a fearful word to the many who find comfort in the status quo.

And speaking of fear: What if all the polls are wrong?

EARLY RETURNS: Obama won Dixville Notch 15-6, but fivethirtyeight.com notes that results there are historically meaningless even if it nearly always goes Republican.

(Obama volunteer Stacy Sells provided the photo above from a closing rally in Missouri yesterday. And Larry Woodall of Springdale captured the sign of the times below. Duck and cover.)

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
