Bush's '97 Law Boomerangs...... Harry White Harry da Hammer leighnharry@earthlink.net George,
I agree it is not rocket science but it is a mechanical device that punches the hole and they do screw up. I worked on teletype machines while in the Navy and on punched card equipment later in civilian life. Both were prone to incomplete punches which caused mis-reads by the mechanical or optical readers. These problems are not operator problems, they are equipment problems. The operator/voter should not be punished for equipment problems. Mechanical problems should not decide who the next president will be. We need a better system as bobC stated earlier.
BobC, I really liked the lottery analogy. It can be done.
