Evening Edition - It's hard not to feel disheartened with the election news as of 11pm PST.

Ohio is still too close to call, (a battleground state highlightedin this space several times) but things aren't looking good.

Bans on gay marriage passed in all 11 states in which it was on the ballot.

And what's wrong with kids these days? The AP reported that despite P. Diddy's entreaties and Rock the Vote concerts, the youth vote didn't turn out after all. In fact, "fewer than one in 10 voters Tuesday were 18 to 24, about the same proportion of the electorate as in 2000, exit polls indicated."

Here's hoping I wake up to better news in the morning.
