election day jitters

As if I weren't nervous enough about this election, the Red Sox play a crucial playoff game tonight. If we can get CBC without the cable box, we can set up two TVs next to each other, put them both on mute, and watch the game and election returns at the same time. We'll find out shortly if this is possible.

This whole election thing is so scary. If Canada had proportional representation, we could know that the will of the people was reflected in the House of Commons. As it stands now, it all depends on who lives where. That's no way to run a democracy.

Update. It doesn't work. No TV without a cable box. So we'll put the game on a laptop and election returns on TV.
