- Grand Experiment -

I'm checking out from the election coverage for a week—no NY Times, no WaPo, no NPR ... especially no blogs. My goal is to figure out what sort of information/message a reasonably distracted person might be getting about the election. I'll issue reports as they come.

Let's start with this mornings paper. A lot about the hurricane; the Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers situation is also on the front page along with a small campaign article. Inside, there is a big article about Obama's $66 million haul. None of the opinion pieces addressed the campaign directly, but there was an editorial about candidate fashion choices.
