I wonder what a professor would say if you turned in a paper using that my-reader-is-a-blockhead bold font all over the place.

1. realclear polls show Obama improving in PA, OH, FL (but still behind); still behind in MI and worsening a tiny bit in VA:

Pennsylvania 47.8 40.5 Obama +7.3
Ohio 47.5 41.3 Obama +6.2
Michigan 40.7 42.3 McCain +1.6
Wisconsin 49.0 41.0 Obama +8.0
Virginia 44.3 43.8 Obama +0.5
Florida 42.0 47.7 McCain +5.7

2. Sorel's best moment: when he stops off in Church to ensure he's sufficiently hypocritical that day.

Blame the holier than thou Times for the land deal mess. Sometimes public officials know best.

PC/unPC/Susan... You totally failed to comment on the Michelle Obama story. The phony smears against her are some of your, uh, proudest work. Or whatever. Your most significant work I guess. I mean you basically have nothing except a lot of wrong predictions and your false rumors, and the false rumors are all that have amounted to anything.

Comment? Are you sorry? Do you wish you could take it back? Do you plan on doing more of that kind of thing?

Whatever happened to Police Beat, anyway?

@3: Explain? My parents live 1/2 mile from the Donut Hole and are ecstatic that the Yarrow Bay offer fell through. HW 169 is in crappy shape, and throwing 1000-2000 more cars per day on it isn't going to make it any better.

#2 Real Clear Politics is child's play - check out if you want real polling analysis

FWIW Obama is starting to pull away - this could actually turn into a rout

We'll re-defeat NO-Bama in November!!!

Living at the other end of HW 169, I agree w/ @7.

@8 - 538 predicts Indiana will go blue. That *really* hurts their credibility.

I'd love to see it happen, but I won't hold my breath.

@7 & @10, hate to burst your bubble, but the winning bidder was the same company that the city was originally negotiating with. In fact, they were the sole bidder. So, they are going to proceed with their project. Meanwhile, the city gets less money.
