Computerized voting disaster in San Diego?
By Tom Smith

Local radio pundit Rick Roberts is reporting massive failure of the new touch screen electronic voting machines all over San Diego county this morning. Apparently, the new machines just aren't, well, working. If these early reports are true, it's hard to see how the election won't be thrown out. This would be too bad, as there are some important matters on the ballot, such as Proposition P, intended to secure more funding for our dangerously under-staffed and equipped fire fighting forces. Stay tuned.
