no kids around to see this. To think, all I used to

Arafat's death: too close to call
75-year-old Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat may
or may not have succumbed today in a battle with death
that most experts are deeming "too close to call".
After being admitted to a French hospital in serious
condition last week, Arafat's condition has gone downhill,
suffering a brain hemorrhage and slipping into a coma.
On Saturday, Fox News was the first to project Arafat's
death based on exit interviews with French doctors.
Then on Monday, Fox rescinded their projection, putting
Arafat back into the "living" column after
many Palestinians demanded a recount of Arafat's pulse.
Other networks are taking a more cautious approach,
listing Arafat's status as "insufficient data".

is expected to occur in today's election. "The
percentage of eligible voters who don't vote might be
close to 40% this year," said election analyst
Jane Delorme, "usually it's about 50%." Precincts
are preparing themselves with a slight increase in the
number of poll workers to be on hand today, as well
as the occasional use of an extra voting booth. Although
shaping up to a another presidential race so close it
could be decided by mere thousands of votes, more than
80 million Americans of voting age are expected not
