I've one wish about elections and counting votes

I wish for accuracy over speed. I wish they would take time to count all the votes, recount if need be or they are close, before announcing results.

I would much prefer to be in stressful limbo for a week than have someone declared winner based on partial information.

It also would make many feel their votes counted, it they were counted before any announcement.

That's my wish.

Bus driver who had a heart attack in Settle was a Karamazov brother

I heard about the event last night on the news, saw elsewhere that Sam Williams, aka Smerdyakov Karamazov, had died and find to find out it's all the same. RIP Sam.

So here's someone appointed to his cabinet and disagrees with the vile one and.....gets removed and replaced asap and tweeted about. How long will the next one last?

There's no job security for them. Ha!

Found on snopes on a page about how to not believe some facebook generated page. It's a user generated map, please read the title. I thought it amusing.
