    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Monday, November 01, 2004

    Auspicious ears? 

    Seems as if everyone is searching the skies for a sign of who might emerge victorious come Tuesday (or Wednesday or Thursday) depending on your point of view. The newest theory to emerge comes hot on the heels of the Washington Redskins' Sunday loss. Seems that bodes well for challenger John Kerry - a Redskins win on Sunday would have translated to a victory for George W. Bush. The last Redskins home game before the election has proven pivitol, with a 15-0 success rate, according to ABC Sports.

    In the meantime, on the West Coast, the San Jose Mercury News turned to four well-regarded Asian fortunetellers for their take on the presidential contest.

    "In many Asian countries, divination is a respected calling. Important financial and personal decisions are often made in consultation with soothsayers, who are addressed as 'masters' and 'teachers.' Unlike Western fortunetellers who read tarot cards and palms, many Asian prognosticators specialize in reading faces," writes reporter K. Oanh Ha.

    Bush has "auspicious ears," says one. Kerry's "long and graceful" nose means he can sniff out problems says another.

    As for who the tellers say might win? Check it out for yourself.
