Personal note; politics...

Happy Iowa Caucus Day!

Tonight, finally -- unless something truly bizarre happens -- we are at last going to know who has won the Iowa caucuses. I've never been in suspense about who was going to win those caucuses before, or by how many points, or anything of that kind; this year, I really am. I don't expect to feel the same suspense about the rest of the primaries, but this one has been a cliffhanger, and I still haven't the vaguest idea how it's going to turn out.

[My science-fiction-writer mind is coming up with all sorts of scenarios in the "something truly bizarre" line; I don't seem to be able to keep it from doing that. My preference would be for none of those things to happen.]

At my house, we have saved some champagne especially for tonight.
