On my great steed Sabermetric, I venture forth to distant shores. From the innumerate roar of stadiums shall the Signal be found once more.

Molten variables hiss and roar. On my mind-forge, I hammer them into the greatsword Epistemology. Many are my foes this night.

Florida is now our last toss-up state. I shall not rest until its dead-alive citizens are freed from their quantum hell.

A pundit asks me for the state of the race. I chant Bayes' theorem until his writings crumble into dust. The Noise fades - for now.
