56. Perhaps I should have posted the clarification here, as well as the original thread.
OTOH remarked that Ananda misheard what was said. I agreed. I also had thoughts as to why she may have made such error. Finally, on that thread I corrected my error regarding NYC ballot style issues. If there is anything else posted in error, feel free to point it out.

It seems Rady and Andi heard what Bo wanted everyone to hear.

I heard...barely through the terrible audio quality...Bo make the reference twice, "the highest court in the land which..." and "the highest court in the land that..."

Tell me, Mark, what do you think when you hear, "the highest court in the land"? Also, please tell me if you know, why he may have chosen that phrase. Was there a lower court ruling??? That, I suppose, could be used as an excuse.

Listen to his tone as he says "gonna have to tell it to the judge". Actually, telling it to a judge is exactly what is planned. And Bo probably knows that. Would Bo tell the voters that? And if not, why not? He advocates challenging the judge's why dis others who are troubled by and challenging the decision.

Bo also expresses surprise that the ImageCast software can't accommodate NYC ballot styles. Reminding the listener that he's a software engineer he can't believe the vendor wouldn't have taken greater care. Wow! The industry is built-on revision after revision of product and he's surprised!

And while Bo is satisfied with the judges decision to retire levers, he goes on to be critical of the judge not caring that Optical Scans are melting-down nation-wide. I know you can OTOH that to death (I could, too) but you'll appreciate the conflict represented.

Sure sounds like Bo mis-leading the voters. Were it not his intent, he might consider being more careful.

Why, oh why, would anyone assume Bo Lipari being disingenuous or manipulative? :shrug:
