We probably don't have to tell you what our feelings are about the outcome of the special election. But, we thought it might be fun to suggest that our readers create sub-titles for this NYT article.
Go forth and comment!

Fewer than 6,000 people voted and the Dr. won with fewer than 2K votes. Sad turnout.

Well, we could hardly expect a large turn-out and Eugene did win overwhelmingly. I just hope the impression I formed at the HDC-sponsored forum was wrong--wouldn't be the first time.

The only thing this "overwhelming" win indicates to me is that when most people DON'T vote in an election, a mobilized special-interest group gains quite a bit of leverage.

Ah yes, special interests. It's pretty easy for them to get a foothold on neighborhood blogs, too. Isn't it, Ed.

I love the smell of Dr. Eugene in the morning; smells like...victory.
