Blog carnivals

With the elections on November 4th in the United States being over, the special election edition of the Carnival of the Liberals is up at The Lay Scientist. It includes articles that focus on the election, organized by whether an article was written before or after. My punditry as to what went wrong with McCain's presidential campaign is included in the latter category.

In the same vein, the 43rd edition of the Carnival of Mathematics is up at The Number Warrior, which has a preponderance of puzzles this time around. Among them is my explanation of a puzzle of chance presented at the Shores of the Dirac Sea.
