I'm going to miss tonight's debate, sadly. It coincides with my Nazi Germany class, and I can't really afford to miss three-hour lectures; there's just too few of them.
And that's a shame, because I was hoping to liveblog all the debates. I'd even considered recording it, and doing it when I got home - but I have to work tomorrow morning, and by 11:00 the spin cycle will have already taken off to the extent that I'll be unable to come to a completely independent impression. There's something special about getting a real off-the-cuff impression without instant replay or meta-meta-analysis via others. Oh well.
That said, I hope Kerry is still orange
