HAPPILY EVER CAFTA:

Arias Wins Recount Of Costa Rican Vote,
Boosting Cafta Hope
(John Lyons, Wall Street Journal)

Well, Ron Sims and Dean Logan have been seen in their offices the past week, so I guess we can assume Arias didn't win this with a King County recount... (Then again, maybe those two should write a book, "Stealing Elections for Dummies".)
