Election returns: my sister wins another term!
Meanwhile, in New Orleans, William Jefferson got 30% of the vote leading a field of a zillion candidates for his seat. He'll be in a December run-off with Karen Carter. Also, an ammendment was passed that exempts artists and gallery owners from paying tax on unsold art. This was a nice surprise, since it was the only ammendment that the Times-Picayune had no opinion on. In fact, it had so little of an opinion that the only coverage it warrented was a single sentence that misrepresented the exemption as one of "exemption from property tax."
