This terrific site is running again. It has tons of election data (click successively on all the icons below the map to see what is there) and a “nonpartisan” (but enlightened) blog about the state of the mid-term elections. Click on the “Previous report” link at the top of the page to see previous blogs. In 2004, I’m told, this was the most popular election site in the country, pulling in 700,000 visitors a day.

MORE ON WARREN BUFFETT AND GOLF
Warren Buffet gave $100,000 in order to caddy for Tiger Woods at a charity golf event. ‘It wasn’t the hardest job,’ Buffet told the Omaha World-Herald. ‘I mostly rode in the cart.’ Woods suggested making a wager for ‘serious money’ on the 18th hole, to which Buffet replied, ‘All money is serious, Tiger.’ The bet was for $5.00, and Woods had to play the hole from his knees. Woods made bogey, and won the hole and the bet. After Buffet gave Woods the $5.00, he cleared his throat and said, “Aren’t you forgetting something?” Woods couldn’t imagine what it was. “My [caddy’s] 10%. You owe me 50¢.”
