Music:a prematurely melancholy memory of McFadden & Whitehead's classic
Cal is playing USC on Saturday at the Coliseum. The Bears' chance of victory is extremely slim. But I am not without hope. Then again, by the end of the day, I might be. A story this morning on the anxieties flooding American voters now that Election Day has finally arrived -- insert reflexive exhortation to vote here -- closed with one man's expression of relief: "Even if McCain wins, I will breathe a big sigh of relief," he said. "Even if my guy doesn't win, I will be relieved that it's over." I suppose I could say the same thing, but my definition of "over" is considerably more capacious.
