Three years after a fluke fall in a race derailed his career, Cam Levins, the 29-year-old from Black Creek, B.C., will make his marathon debut on Sunday. While he has set a speedy time goal -- he has a pacer to take him through the first 30 kilometres at Canadian-record speed -- getting to the finish line in one piece will be worth celebrating.

Arizona and Georgia are leading examples. As early voting has begun across America and seen record turnouts, the big question is: Will people voting for Democrats surmount the obstacles that the GOP has built in red-run states to achieve winning popular vote majorities?Those obstacles began with extreme gerrymanders in 2011 for state legislative and U.S. House districts. They continued with newly crafted red super-majorities passing strict voter ID laws. And now, in the finale to 2018’s midterms, a new tactic is emerging that can be described as data suppression.In short, in a handful of red-run states with change-making races, voter information that would normally add people to registration rolls is not being readily processed. That scenario creates a likely prospect of Election Day ambushes, starting with surprised people whose names are not in poll books, and then rippling outward as they fill out provisional ballots while others are delayed in line.Versions of this voter da...

Brandon (Speedy) Banks hauled in the ball, knowing he was wide open with the goal-line beckoning. It was the goalpost at the south end of BMO Field. Banks, a toothpick of a receiver listed at five foot seven and 150 pounds, bounced off the post, but held onto the ball for a 17-yard TD reception that gave Hamilton a 16-10 lead midway through the second quarter Friday night.

The state is drawing on the complementary strengths of paper and digital public records. In recent weeks, a small drama has escalated in a corner of the election world—one whose stakes underscore that a new generation of voting technology is being introduced across America, and that if state and county officials were willing, the vote counting process could be opened up in markedly more transparent and trustable ways.At first glance, that tussle appears to be the latest fight between old nemeses. One of the nation’s largest voting system manufacturers, Nebraska-based ES&S, has threatened to sue a scrappy grassroots group, Arizona-based Audit USA, which posted manuals of its paper ballot scanners online, and since has said that it won’t take them down.“As a company engaged in what is essentially a public activity, i.e., voting, you must surely recognize that the public has a right to know how election results are produced and that they be publicly verified,” wrote Au...

It’s unclear what argument (if any) the “South Park” writers were trying to make. If you compare the most recent episode of “South Park” with its immediate predecessor, you have a case study in the difference between good satire and bad satire. In good satire, there is a clear focus on the subject you’re ridiculing and the message you want to convey about it. While “South Park” achieved this last week with “A Boy and a Priest,” which took on the Catholic Church’s pedophilia scandal, it failed miserably in “A Problem with a Poo” because it didn’t really know what it had to say.There are two subplots in “A Problem with a Poo,” each of which only tangentially connects with the other one. In Plot A, the talking piece of human feces known as Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo (Trey Parker) learns that the budget for his annual Christmas show has been cut in half. Out of anger, Mr. Hankey begins posting offensive “jokes” on Twitter that only worsen his s...
