    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Tuesday, November 02, 2004

    The show must go on 

    All this watching and waiting and wondering if we'll have a president-elect today - or this week - is reminiscent of an old Mary Tyler Moore election episode. "The snow must go on" originally aired on Nov. 7, 1970 - election week - and has Mary and her newsroom pals working on a mayoral election night.

    The teletype machine types goes out the first results of the evening - Turner 85, Mitchell 23 - before a major snowstorm hits and takes the machine out with it. The rest of the night, everyone tries to fill in the broadcast - Rhoda, Ted, a priest who is there for an entirely different reason. Finally, Chuckles the Clown shows up, says the roads have been cleared and, in full red-nose-and-large-shoes regalia, delievers the outcome of the race.

    Not unlike today's bloggers desperate to write something about an election still too close to call. :)
