ONE WEEK.

"Right now, in Canton, Ohio, Barack Obama is delivering his “closing argument.” It begins: One week. After decades of broken politics in Washington, eight years of failed policies from George Bush, and twenty-one months of a campaign that has taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are one week away from change in America."

YOU MIGHT HAVE TO REPEAT THAT FOR HIM. (MY FAVORITE MOMENT OF THE DEBATE...BY FAR.)

NICE TO SEE ROLLING STONE RETURNING TO FORM.

IF HE WASN'T BUSY BECOMING PRESIDENT, I'D TAKE HIM TO THE RACETRACK, AND LET HIM PLACE MY BETS. HE'S OBVIOUSLY KIND OF PROPHETIC.

NOT REALLY SOMETHING YOU WANT MADE PUBLIC THE DAY OF YOUR FINAL DEBATE.

"The Bush administration issued a pair of secret memos to the CIA in 2003 and 2004 that explicitly endorsed the agency's use of interrogation techniques such as waterboarding against al-Qaeda suspects -- documents prompted by worries among intelligence officials about a possible backlash if details of the program became public"

"Frustrated by the impracticable and time-consuming nature of similar Eco-calculators, Carbon Diem collects speed and distance data via GPS, and identifies modes of transport using a motion-sensing algorithm. The application encourages users to reduce their energy usage, by setting personal energy targets and comparing their results with others. Carbon Diem developers believe their software will help businesses to reduce energy consumption by monitoring employees travel information. Privacy is obviously an issue, but inventor Andreas Zachariah assures the software only tracks carbon impact, not travel paths."

KIDS FOR OBAMA PARADE? GREAT IDEA. STARTING AT THIS LOCATION? UH, NOT SO MUCH.

"For all you ObamaMamas (and papas) out there, here’s a chance to show your support with the whole family at the Kids for Obama parade. The parade starts this Sunday at 2pm by the Greenlake bathhouse theater. “… children and teens will express with words and drawings their hopes for the future of America on ‘wish flags’ that will be mailed to Obama,” and the first 300 kids to arrive get a free balloon."

SOUNDS REASONABLE.

"The Bush administration has abruptly halted a government program that tests the levels of pesticides in fruits, vegetables and field crops, arguing that the $8 million-a-year program is too expensive — a decision critics say could make it harder to protect consumers from chemicals in their food."

TIME TO DO YOUR PART. FOR OTHERS.

"There are hundreds of thousands of people in the United States who filed registration applications but were not put on the voter rolls because of actual or alleged defects in their applications.

Unless these people have already fixed the problem or filed another application which was accepted, they will not be able to vote in November.

Click on the links below to find the names and addresses of people in the counties named who are in this situation.

If you know any of them, please contact them immediately and let them know they have to fix the problem immediately.  The information on these lists has been obtained from election offices in the counties or states indicated."

RIGHT IS WRONG.

AN A FOR INGENUITY.

"Mike, who wanted to be identified only by his first name, told KING-5 that he saw a Craigslist ad last week seeking workers for a road-maintenance project. He inquired and was e-mailed instructions to meet near the bank at 11 a.m. Tuesday and to wear specific clothing. advertising "Yellow vest, safety goggles, a respirator mask ... and, if possible, a blue shirt," Mike told KING-5. No contractor met Mike and about a dozen other similarly dressed men who showed up at the bank, and they thought they had been stood up. Then, KING-5 reported, a man told them about the bank robbery. " 'Yeah, guys, we just got scammed,' " Mike said the man told him. "Bank robbery just happened to be right across the street, in the same attire in all the e-mails that everyone got."
