    Could we join Diebold in the 21st century now? 

    Diebold Inc. stock began the morning up almost 2 percent at $49.59. No wonder. The Green company's voting machines functioned well while some of their competitors - including Danaher Controls' touch-screens - experienced problems. Makes an Ohioblog wonder about the judgment of Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell, who blocked the machines from being installed by counties that wanted to use them. (Of course, Ohioblog is always wondering about Ken's judgment.) Voting without a paper trail worries people. Electronic voting machine makers are addressing this. They promised retrofits for machines purchased and used in this election. That wasn't good enough to halt the political infighting, so Ohioans once again voted mostly with outdated punchcards. Unlike Floridians in 2000, Ohioans had their chad together, and there were no significant problems.
