A Kestrel’s Nest repeat, from September 9, 1999:

I’ve never really been interested in abolishing the electoral college, that quirky part of our presidential elections created by those men in powdered wigs. Now, more than ever, after reading this article, I’m a firm supporter of the system. Of course, as the election draws near, this’ll be a hot topic in the media. And now I’ll be ready.

The original article has been AWOL for the better part of this year, but Jorn at Robot Wisdom found it again. It really is the most eloquent argument for the electoral college that I’ve seen.
