Fla. Official Denies Hand Recounts

BY ANNE GEARAN, Associated Press Writer

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris rejected requests from Democratic-leaning counties Wednesday night to include the result of hand recounts in presidential vote totals. George W. Bush opposes the ballot reviews and Al Gore favors them in their battle for the White House.

The state's chief elections officer, sharply criticized by Democrats in recent days as a partisan Republican, declared it was "my duty under Florida law" to reject requests that four counties submitted earlier in the day. . . .

I know a cat named Way-Out Willie,

Got a cool little chick named Rocking Millie.

He can walk and stroll and Susie Q

And do that crazy hand jive, too.


Mama, mama, look at Uncle Joe

Doing the hand jive with sister Flo.

Grandma gave baby sister a dime;

Said, "Do that hand jive one more time."


Hand jive, hand jive, hand jive,

Do that crazy hand jive.


Doctor and a lawyer and an Indian chief,

They all dig that crazy beat.

Way-Out Willie gave them all a treat

When he did that hand jive with his feet.


Willie and Millie got married last fall.

They had a little Willie junior and that ain't all.

Well, the kids got crazy and it's plain to see,

Doing the hand jive on T.V.
