As my brother points out, Rossi's maintained a forty-two vote lead in the Washington gubenatorial race recount.

Interesting quote from Gregoire in her statement (as published by Bloomberg):

``Voters have a sacred right to have their ballots counted. That's been our goal throughout this process,'' Gregoire said in a statement. ``We want every vote to be counted. But that hasn't happened yet.''

Sacred right? Sacred right? I am intrigued to know my brother's (promised) thoughts on this issue--what does ground the right to vote, anyway? I'm all for Democracy, but I'm suspicious of those who equate Democracy with religion. Here's for a strong division between Church and State, at least until the Kingdom comes.
