A day that will live in infamy

Gore wants the justices to do nothing less than
overturn the official results of Florida's election,
which show Bush the victor by 537 votes out of 6
million cast. A trial court judge has already refused
to order recounts in Democratic-leaning counties,
prompting the appeal.
Two other judges in the state capital weighed
Democratic requests to throw out thousands of
absentee votes, a move that could also tip the bal-
ance to Gore. Republicans made clear that they
were ready to appeal any unfavorable ruling, pos-
sibly returning to a federal appeals court in
"We have always had to prepare for every contin-
gency ... we are prepared to file appeals and briefs,"
Richard said late yesterday on CNN.
While the state justices weighed the case, the boxes
of more than 10,000 disputed ballots that Gore wants
counted were shipped to the high court as evidence --
a routine transfer from the trial court.
In Washington, Gore invited running mate
Joseph Lieberman to the vice president's mansion
to watch the historic arguments on TV Later, Gore
and Lieberman took their wives to a movie aptly
titled, "You can count on me." His campaign chair-
man, William Daley, flew to Florida to thank Gore's
lawyers, their job nearly done.
In Austin, Texas, Bush arrived for work at his gov-
ernor's office just as the arguments began. lie didn't
watch the proceedings, though he was briefed after-
ward by James Baker, his point man in Florida.
"We'll see what happens," Bush told reporters.

may be somewhat confusing in the way
that it is only a holiday every four years.
She said she would advocate making
Election Day a holiday every year.
Observing Election Day as a national
holiday would "really direct the atten-
tion of the country that we're voting,"
Congress isn't the only branch of
government working to increase voter
turnout. Michigan Secretary of State
Candice Miller introduced a plan last
month to implement a unified voting
system across the state and proposed
making Election Day a holiday.
Gov. John Engler's spokeswoman
Susan Schafer said one of the factors
that helped Vice President Al Gore win
Michigan this presidential election year
was the fact that members of the United
Auto Workers union had the day off
from work to go out and vote. She
added that it is difficult to speculate if
having the day off from work would
have helped Texas Gov. George Bush
win the Michigan's 18 electoral votes.
"Some people may look at it as
'Hooray, another day off,"'Schafer said.
But Rivers said a national holiday
does not necessarily mandate that peo-
ple get a day off from work.
Engler has expressed support for a
unified voting system across the state,
but has not stated an opinion about
making Election Day a national holiday,
Upton said although it is unlikely that
the bill will pass in the remaining days
that Congress is in session, he intended
to put the issue on the table and plans to
reintroduce it next year.

Bush's team was directing intermediaries who had
quietly urged GOP lawmakers to intervene to pro-
tect Bush's interests.
House Speaker Tom Feeney had said he was in
contact with Bush advisers but tried to roll back
from the comments yesterday, saying he had talked
to "friends who worked with the party." lie seemed
to complain about GOP outsiders "telling the party
folks how to run things" in Florida, but said he had
not discussed the special session with the Bush team.
House Democratic Leader Lois Frankel called
the special session the "ultimate partisan act."
In the neoclassical Florida Supreme Court
chambers, lawyers for Bush and his political ally,
Secretary of State Katherine Harris, said Gore was
asking the court to exceed its authority.

"I love the charges - the mass orga-
nized advances are some of the most
spectacular things you will ever see on
this campus," said West Quad resident
Neal Lyons, an LSA sophomore.
"After winning four consecutive years,
maybe next year they'll just open the

dent Matt Nolan, an LSA sophomore.
Earlier in the day, students making
their way to class lamented the falling
snow and chilling winds.
Some of the coldest people on cam-
pus were those like RC junior Jenna
Hershman who have to travel between
Central and North campuses to get to
work or classes. "I have to take the bus
to work," Hershman said. "It's cold out
and it's a pain."
Students who come from warmer
areas of the country, like LSA sopho-
more Ben Boylston, have some adjust-
ment to make as well.
"I'm not cut out for this weather,"
said Boylston, of Leesburg, Fla. "You
Yankees can keep it. I need to go back
where I belong."
Not all students are waiting for warm
weather to return. Consistent snowfall
enables students such as Kinesiology
freshman Andrea Parker to engage in

amounts so I can ski," Parker said.
