Something to Know

1.  Judge: Employee not let go over intelligent design beliefs.  Turns out he was not sharp enough to keep up and combative in his presentation of his beliefs to his fellow employees:

2.  The continuing problem of Romney lying about anything is receiving close attention in many quarters.  In this piece, there is speculation that he is trying to make up for the failure of his father to succeed as a result of him speaking the truth.  The other reason is that there is something about the foundation of his religion (LDS Church) that appears to be based on falsehoods and untrue tales.  This all makes it okay for Mittley to feel inspired to lie:

3.  China and Japan support Obama in US election.   As this article reads, you get a flavor of international opinion.   There is also a story in the Economist where about 90% of the Europeans look at our election and like Obama over Romney:

4.  Andy Borowitz makes an occasional appearance on this forum.  Here he is in a stand-up routine, where he predicts the winner of the 2012 election, and lets you in on his more personal life:

5.  The Washington Post endorses Obama.  In doing so, it is not so much about his performance or his record, but the lacking substance of Willard Mitt Romney.   I told some people very early in this campaign that the crux of the decisions by voters will settle on Character.   Romney has a track record, and it is horrible, inconsistent, and lacking.   The Post's main gripe is that he basically insults the average voter.   Case closed:

6.  Charles Blow gives us his analysis of why Mitt Romney is Unraveling.  Nothing new here, except that it seems to be spelling out why Mitt is going to lose next Tuesday:

7.  Gail Collins finishes it off with a list of what we can contemplate as we near election day.  Whatever is going to happen is going to happen.  If you are not in the state of Ohio, you are just as important, and there are other races you can work on, as well:
