The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

U.S. election watch

In N.H, GOP Is Torn Between 2 Senate Hopefuls

Coverage of the brawl between incumbent Sen. Bob Smith and challenger John E. Sununu (son of the ex-NH governor and GHW Bush chief of staff) for the state GOP's Senate nomination. The vote is tomorrow.

Smaith has been a controversial figure, and some state Republicans are worried that he would lose in November 2002 to poular Gov. Jeanne Shaheen, the lone Democratic candidate for the Senate Seat. With the Senate currently at 50-49-1, every close race is of the utmost importance.

Mark Shields' analysis on what could be the first time that an incumbent Senator has been defeated in a primary in ten years.

More from the Associated Press.

Tomorrow will also be a big day in Florida, with Janet Reno facing off against Bill McBride in the state Democrats' gunbernatorial primary. There will also be primaries in nine other states and DC.

Political junkes, rejoice!
