Hey Joe - the audio is totally saturated when any noise is present besides Paul talking.... can you work on that?

No, I just suggest you turn the volume down low.

Of course you can RS. I love the technology. If I didn't have four 9th graders here working on a video project, I would be there.

So this is kind of liking watching returns at a party without wearing makeup!

And I'm seeing a lot of my friends there and some of them might not be so happy to have that camera on them while they're eating. Or whatever they're doing... That computer needs to be raised up a few feet. Upshots aren't flattering.

DPSV shows! Nice. They endorsed and they're loyal. I like that.

What on earth is the holdup at the City Clerk's office?

No single precinct counted two hours after polls have closed is unprecedented. This could be a problem night.

11% of precincts are up. Percentages basically the same.

I called Phil but the signal was bad. The phone cut right as he was screaming something that sounded like he said Krekorian was stealing votes.

Ok, now the cops have arrived. Essel
is still screaming. Shallman has ducked out. Berman is trying to calm her down. Dale Thrush and Sheftel are holding hands and crying.

I'm not sure Petra. Phil sounded pretty upset about something.

How serious are you, MS?

Personally, if Phil stroked out it would be OK with me.

Okay, Paul - time to make it a true victory for us! It's time, man!

How insane that you can become a Los Angeles City Council Member with only 10,000 votes - what a disgrace!

The make-out couple were gross. I agree, get a room.

I loved Paul's speech. I was hoping he would reach out to Chris Essel and her supporters and he did. I hope he does that. It's very important and I was so glad he said that.

How about Mary Benson's reception? Who's the CD 2 PLUM Queen?? Who says activists don't rule?

Good job to all, congratulations to everyone involved.

Now I'm going to sleep and they're all driving home.

Hey Kim your photo looks cute.

Thanks Michael. That was my mom's birthday party in Ohio in July. You can't even tell that I was sleeping on the floor of the Houston airport just 6 hours before! (We got stuck there)

Funny comment on the radio silence. But give them a break. I wouldn't be posting either if I were on the losing side. They're mad, tired, and stressed and will stay that way for a week or so.

Goodnight to the MS crowd. I'm off to sleep.
