Letters project: Thursday's New York Times letters to the editor: 14 total letters. 5 anti-Bush. 1 neutral. 3 pro-Bush.

Our expert witness, Dr. Ron Baiman of the University of Illinois, testified that the probability that John Kerry won Ohio (and thus the presidency) was about 99 percent.
I think I'll take a look at the data which suggests that something was to blame for more than 50,000 ballots being miscounted in Ohio.
*UPDATE* That took a fraction of a second. It turns out that Dr. Baiman's analysis isn't based on votes of any type -- but on the mistaken belief that exit polls are more accurate than counting actual votes. His article is here. [PDF format]
