I wes interested to see that Craig Newmark of Craigslist (the nice guy who could be blamed for destroying newspapers if we weren't so busy destroying them ourselves) is taking a strong stand on the voter suppression laws sweeping the country. I wss also struck by this fact from his big infographoc.

Between 2000 and 2007, 352 Americans were struck and killed by mightning.

There were 9 cases of alleged voter impersonation.
