Jimbob said "Yeah, keep this thread running. May it serve as an example to all the American politics nuts who insist on starting a new post every time Hillary takes a shit
." And so that's just what we did. In an example of how I think Metafilter can do politics well, the Australian Politics thread
, which started on October 14 (the date the election was called, which is not
the first day of the campaign), ran for 30 days straight and (at time of writing) had amassed almost 600 comments. But as is the norm for an FPP after 30 days on the Blue, it's about to be closed so discussion has moved over to Thread #2
, by wilful, to get us through to election day. An index of the first thread is inside, as well as kudos for those involved (because I think they deserve it). [more inside]

Regina, Sask MeFi Meetup
- I posted this in the "Little Mosque on the Prairies"
thread but thought it's proper procedure to post it here too.
I'm organizing a MeFi meetup for next Friday, January 12 at 7pm at Bushwakkers
in Regina, SK. I sent e-mails to the four people shown as living in Regina via the "Users Near You" feature but some people don't have their geo-coordinates and/or e-mail addresses on their member pages. So if you're interested in joining us, please e-mail me at: email@example.com
as I plan to make a reservation. Also, feel free to invite non-MF friends as I'm sure we aren't going to have a huge crowd like the meetups in New York and LA get!
