Rep. Dan Maffei ’90, D-N.Y., is struggling to hold on to his seat, with recent counts of Tuesday’s ballots showing him behind his opponent by 659 votes. As Maffei waits for 9,000 absentee ballots to be counted, it might be time to better get to know “Star Trek” geek Maffei, as Stephen Colbert did last year. When David Cicilline ’83 joins (replaces?) Maffei in the House Brown University Caucus, maybe he’ll follow in Maffei’s footsteps — and avoid talking about NAMBLA.

In honor of today’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, hosted by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in DC, we bring you Sane or Not, a site à la Face Mash where people send in potential rally signs and you vote on which is the saner of the two. You may not be able to go, but you can be tangentially involved in the process.
