I haven't had a lot of good things to say about Jill Stein this election cycle, but I do today. As many of you know, the gap between popular and electoral vote results for the US presidency grows - Clinton's margin of popular victory is over 2 million. Furthermore, a growing number of specialists in election analysis, computer security, and related fields are saying there are highly suspicious patterns of discrepancy in the results, where counties in crucial states that used electronic voting machines reliably went more for Trump than adjacent counties using paper ballots.

It could be that recounts would show that Trump won fair and square (as far as election day itself goes, setting aside pre-election day vote suppression, which isn't within the scope of recounts). But we won't know unless someone who was on the ballot in the affected areas calls for a recount and puts up a bunch of the dough required.

I would like to see Clinton call for the recounts. (I'd feel the same way about Trump, if he'd lost the electoral vote similarly and the same pattern were to show up.) But she doesn't seem to want to; it's not the kind of thing national-level Democrats tend to go for, even in very anomalous cases like this.

Stein was on the ballot in all the affected areas, and she does want to. She's got a fundraiser going to get the money needed in time, and time is very short. I don't think there's any other situation where I'd say "Consider donating to a Jill Stein project", but this one? Check it out and consider donating. I think that careful recounts are always a good idea when election results are close and/or weird like this.

If I find any typos in the Glorantha Source Book or the 13th Age in Glorantha book, where can I report them?
