Janet Reno has apparently lost her Florida election, and she is complaining about the count and refusing to concede. Florida bought new polling equipment after the 2000 election debacle. But the 2000 problem was more a political problem than a technological problem, and I wouldn't expect fancy technology to make the situation any better.

Reno was a terrible attorney general, and I am glad to see her out of office. Remember Waco? The Ruby Ridge cover-up? Her secret deal to stop appointing independent
prosecutors? Her efforts to ban encryption and increase wiretaps? The deportation of Elian Gonzalez? Ashcroft is a far better attorney general.
