Look two or three people I doubt can do statistical predictions, vs Nate Silver, I think I know who I'd rather listen to.
Alan Abramowitz takes issue with Nate Silver's new forecasting model that shows the presidential race is essentially a toss up. "First, it isn't really a forecasting model because the growth rate of the economy during the year of the election won't be known until long after the election is over. In addition, the measure of the opposition candidate's extremism is highly subjective... More importantly, Silver's model may underestimate Barack Obama...

math+baseball = fortunately I haven't had time to pay attention to the Sox http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/27/september-collapse-of-red-sox-could-be-worst-ever/
If the Red Sox fail to win their final two games, their late-season swoon could be historic.

Why health ins companies are not efficient: 1 hour on the phone so that United Health Care Student Representatives can fax a certificate of coverage to another division of United Health Care saying that I had prior coverage. Oh, but of course now +Mekayla Beaver needs to call to do hers too. When do I get to just pay my government to provide health insurance so I never have to change again? Rather have one bureaucracy that at least I have a vote on rather than 8000 that are accountable to no one.
