cards decide election outcome http://www.stpetetimes.com/2004/11/11/Hillsborough/Luck_of_the_draw_deci.shtml

Florida law says a tie may be settled by “lots.” Assistant County Attorney Ken Tinkler told the candidates that could include drawing straws, choosing cards or a coin flip. Coin tosses have been popular in settling other ties around the state.

But Whitaker and Castro had talked.

“I think we’d prefer cards,” said Whitaker, an attorney.

“Ace high?” asked Castro, a Dillards sales associate.

Whitaker agreed.

The bible describe casting lots for jesus’s clothes. Are we a christian nation or just christian when convenient? I bet ole W would have turned against his whole belief system to have had that happen. I am sure guy has a whole deck under the table just waiting.
