Coffee Comfort

Let’s be honest: without coffee, why get up?

If you are feeling me on this, here is a shameless plug for my favorite (strong) certified organic, shade grown French roast: San Francisco Bay Gourmet Coffee.

… and my favorite internet cafe and community gathering place in Alameda, Coffee for Thought

• The National Horse Race

Analysis Oct. 24, 2:00 p.m. ET: This weekend's polls bring good news for Kerry. Five confirm his leads in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Oregon. One has him close in Nevada. Another has him leading in Iowa. Two others have him tied or leading in Florida. Bush's consolation is a poll showing him up by half a point in Hawaii, of all places. We'll need a second survey before believing that. But without Florida, Bush would have to take Ohio and New Mexico just to tie and move the election to the House. And without Florida or Ohio, even a sweep of Minnesota, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Hawaii, and Maine's second CD wouldn't save the president.
