Sam,
Just seems to me that it would have been better to solicit comments about
the election and have them directed to you rather than the LIST.

I'm not sure I agree that it has been a debacle.  It seems to be mainly
coincidence and quite interesting!  Bet it has made a lot of folks realize
that their vote DOES count!

It has certainly made both Gore and Bush realize how marginal their
endorsement is (at least I hope so).
