Blog Notes, E-Day Minus 4

I'll be hospiblogging again today as the First Mate has to undergo a minor surgical procedure. I've finally managed to get my first cup of coffee down, a Starbucks blend of Mexican Whoopee or some such. (Since when did coffee come with such pedigrees?) I'll be hijacking wireless connections during the morning as I can.

With four days left to the election, I wanted to let everyone know what plans I have for Election Day. I will be at work on the day job, but afterwards I will join the Northern Alliance to provide live updates on AM 1280 The Patriot in the Twin Cities, starting at 8 pm CT. We'll be cutting in on Hugh Hewitt's live, marathon Election Night broadcast at the commercial breaks, updating our listeners on election news in the Upper Midwest. We'll stay live until the presidential race has been determined or 3 am, one or the other. Of course, I will be live-blogging the election all night long, so if you stay up, make sure you keep checking back.

If you've been following the Al Qaqaa story, make sure you keep up with both Kerry Spot and the Truth Laid Bear. They're both doing yeoman work on this story, such as it is.

Speaking of yeoman work, how about the fill-in crew over at Instapundit? It's no surprise that it takes three people to replace Glenn Reynolds, but the three that have -- Michael Totten, Ann Althouse, and Megan McArdle -- have done a great job in filling the Professor's shoes. Glenn can relax when he's on vacation.

More later ...

Addendum: Okay, the FM just went into the procedure room, and I'm sitting in the waiting room next to a giant Charlie Brown statue.

One more note -- I will be posting the Caption Contest a little later on today, and we will close it out when the polls close on Tuesday night. If anyone wants to guest judge while we're live blogging the election results, drop me an e-mail and let me know.

UPDATE: The First Mate is home from the hospital, and everything went very well indeed. I think we're done with the "procedures" for a few months, anyway.

I will be appearing on Kevin McCullough's show in a few minutes, so if you're in the tri-state area, tune in!

» Election Eve Radio and Blogging from Stones Cry Out
Perhaps Hugh could have bloggers who are active in the local party and who will be attending the election eve parties call in from time to time to report on events in their area. Anyone else planning an all nighter at the keyboard? [Read More]
