It is upon us. A few predictions:

- The Shia turn out in massive numbers, over 80%

- The Kurds also turn out in similar numbers, and they elect a regional parliament with a large percentage of representatives who favor complete autonomy

- The Sunnis vote in relatively low numbers, like 40% or so

- A few suicide bombers explode themselves (along with innocent would-be voters) in front of polling stations

- The attacks and deaths will be what the media focus on

- Shia candidates will win the majority of the seats

- The UN, Jimmy Carter, France, Russia, Iran, the American Left, and the terrorists will all claim the election lacked credibility

Fall Semester Grades Are In...
