Superstition Ain’t the Way

Ta-Nehisi Coates has my vote:

OK, I’m tired of this. Someone–who shall remain nameless–just asked me if I was “nervous” about Obama. FTDS. I don’t believe in black cats. I don’t toss salt over my shoulder. I step under ladders whenever the mood strikes me. I break mirrors in my spare time. I’ve made a hobby out of splitting poles. Thirteen is my favorite number. So fuck it, I’m gonna say it–Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States.

    “splitting poles?”

    What is that all about?

    Oh yeah, I do walk under ladders and don’t toss salt, but those mirrors are way too messy to clean up, so I try to not break them. :-)
