The hand count was conducted despite a lawsuit filed Saturday by George W. Bush, who sought to preserve his slim margin in the all-or-nothing state.

Of the large sea turtle that a day earlier was using its little legs to push through the blueness, using those same little legs in a vain attempt to free itself from the net wrapped tightly around its neck, squeezing its life away. . .
