Open line

Have at it.

Election note: Nothing to report on the Dist. 38 House recount. It's set for Nov. 18. There are still 43 military ballots that could potentially reach here in time for consideration. Countywide, some 600 provisional ballots are to be reviewed for vote eligibility, but there's no way of knowing how many, if any, of those are from eligible voters who live in Dist. 38. John Edwards (D) still has the same 74-vote lead over Kelly Eichler (R).

Those provisionals, depending, could put some other races in play, too.

I'm out.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
