Good News/Bad News

The latest edition of Reason magazine just arrived, and on the cover are headshots of George W. Bush and John Kerry. The headline: “The good news is, one of these men will lose! (The bad news is, one of them will win)”. Which pretty well sums up my feelings about the upcoming election.

Speaking of Reason, their special Convention Blog has had by far the best coverage of the Democratic and Republican conventions that I’ve seen on the web. Very entertaining, sometimes insightful, and ever-ready to call “bullshit” on either side. Matt Welch’s contributions, in particular, have been great; his dissection of Zell Miller’s speech did a good job of explaining just why I found the speech so creepy.
