Exit polls are reporting that a majority of voters in New Jersey and Virginia, where Republican gubernatorial candidates won tonight, say that President Obama wasn’t a factor in their voting. Obama is personally popular but people are feeling ornery. I get that. Tonight wasn’t that big a deal — certainly no national referendum.

I was seriously impressed with Tom Ford’s A Single Man in Toronto. It played even better early this evening. Gently moving, immaculate photography, elegant, understated. Ford’s script is concise and true. 11.3, 7:35 pm.
