We should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive & well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate, bier or wein in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WHOO-HOO, WHAT A RIDE!!!!!!"

SUPER TUESDAY ELECTION RESULTS 1MAR16 (from WASHINGTON POST & HUFFINGTON POST
Total delegates 2,382 to win, 859 in play in these contests
What to Watch For
For the GOP, nearly 600 delegates are up for grabs on Super Tuesday — the most for any day of the 2016 primary season. The bulk of them come from seven Southern contests, including the day’s biggest prize: Texas. Some party strategists warn that if Donald Trump sweeps the South, it may be too late for Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and the other candidates to stop him. Super Tuesday is Hillary Clinton’s chance for an armload of victories that would give her full claim to front-runner status in the Democratic primary race. But Bernie Sanders could spoil it with big wins somewhere outside his native Northeast. Clinton is trying to assume a sheen of inevitability as her party’s presumptive nominee and hoping Texas, with 222 delegates at stake, helps her get there.
Voters in 13 states will make their presidential picks on Super Tuesday 2016.
Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and Wyoming are getting in on the presidential action.
