Springboard looking for a series

As of 3:30 Alaska time today, Senator Stevens’ challenger had gone into the lead by a total of three votes.

No political observation here (and of course they’re still counting) — but my first instinct was, “Man, there’s a Northern Exposure episode in here somewhere.” Maurice and Chris canvassing the town, looking for converts for either side! (In reality, Janine Turner was on the air a few times, campaigning for McCain — though I’m not sure who Maggie O’Connell would be rooting for…)

Trivial note: I have in-laws living in Roslyn, Wash., which served as Cicely. The Brick is there and operating, but last time I was through I don’t think the KBHR studio display was there any more.
