Maryland shrugs off Diebold problems
You've probably already read this scary Salon article about the easily-compromised Diebold voting machines. According to that article, the state of Maryland ordered a review of its purchase of the Diebold machines. Well, guess what? Turns out the state of Maryland will approve tha machines anyway. Security concerns are for weenies, I guess.

UPDATE: Kriston reminds me to mention why Black Box Voting is down: Diebold bullied their ISP into shutting them off. Links via Calpundit and Body and Soul.

You ought to mention why the black box voting site is down...
http://blackboxvoting.com (note .com, not .org) is still up. I've never quite understood the reason for BBV's having two separate domains, but at the moment I'm glad they do.
And I just noticed that Bev Harris soldiers on at http://www.talion.com/blackboxvoting.org.htm, which is where blackboxvoting.org redirects you at the moment.
