What'd I miss? What'd I miss?

It seems I missed an eventful weekend. I woke in Omaha this morning, opened the paper, and found the news mostly good. I guess Bush performed better in the second debate, and from the sound of things, it was much more entertaining than the first. I guess Kerry's probably wishing he'd settled for a single debate after all.

And in other election news, John Howard has won a historic fourth term as Australia's prime minister. YAY!! The Aussies were not bowed by the threat from our enemies, nor were they swayed by the meddling of Diana Kerry. Way to go.

It was also reassuring to see that the elections in Afghanistan were marred more by crummy ink and good ol' American style incompetence than by guns or bombs. Very reassuring.

All of this was welcome news, helping to balance the hangover from the Cornhusker's historic, humiliating defeat at the hands of Texas Tech last night.

Omaha was nice, but it's good to be back. Thanks to CRB for the excellent job he did in my absence. I should leave town more often.


As to the Nebraska loss, I have a tape of the classic OU-NU 35-31 game from 1971 - perhaps the greatest college game I have ever seen.

Each year I watch it and hope that somehow, this time, OU wins but....

So you can imagine that I laughed my ass off up in Albany when Dave Kidera told me the score!

The real NU (Northeastern) beat Villanova this weekend!
