Postponing the recall a bad idea?
Saturday, Sep 20, 2003
Here's a random thought: If the circuit court upholds their decision to postpone the recall election because the punch-card ballots that would otherwise have to be used in several counties disenfranchise many voters, what does that say about current elected officials?

If holding an election next month with this machinery is so disenfranchising as to be illegal, then doesn't that throw the legality of every democratic election performed using these machines into doubt? How could it be important enough to psotpone the recall election for 6 months, but not be important enough to force a revote for every current elected position?

Must.. leave... can of worms.. alone! Lets just get the election over with, so the media can refocus on internationa policy and the presidential race.
