We all need something after reading through the voter guide, right? So I faked this up:

1 scanty mug-full of milk (about a cup)
1 big glop of tasty honey (a tablespoon? two?)
1 generous pinch of saffron

Put the above into a small saucepan, crumbling the saffron between your fingers and sprinkling it onto the milk. Warm, stirring, until the milk is nearly boiling and has turned a pale yellow.

Into the mug, put:
1 oz. Mt. Gay Eclipse rum.
Grate a light dusting of nutmeg over the rum in the mug.

Pour the hot saffron milk into the mug. Grab the mug. Inhale the complex aroma and sip slowly, thinking about autumn.

[Frm LJS] So, any predictions for tonight?

Hmm. No good predictions, though I suspect Prop. 19 will do better than the polls suggest. Nobody wants to come out in favor of pot smoking publicly, but they may support it privately. I also suspect (hope) that people have seen through Meg Whitman and will return Jerry Brown to the governorship.

I fear that San Francisco will pass the 'sit-lie' ordinance, then spend millions fighting court battles over it, then find that it's not actually very useful. Since the behavior they want to stop is in fact obstructing public and private ways and menacing behavior, the last parts of that are certain if it's passed.

Other predictions:
The Republicans will gain votes in the Midwest from people who hate their policies, but vote to turn out the incumbent because they're not happy.

Nancy Pelosi will be returned for her district with about an 80% share of the vote... Barbara Boxer will win re-election, though it will be closer than she likes.

The 2/3 rule for the state budget will be overthrown, unless it requires a supermajority to pass -- I forget precisely what the status of that one is.

Other stuff? No clue. I have a hard enough time deciding how to vote without looking at the political weathervane.
