track
 v.— «The district police chief’s office, on the third floor of the police compound, is dimly lit; sandbags block the windows. Norris goes over the plan, telling Col. Anan, the chief, how many polling sites his police need to protect. In military parlance, the chief isn’t “tracking.” After about twenty minutes, the chief finally says he doesn’t have enough men to do the job.» —“Getting Out the Vote” by Michael Hastings Newsweek Oct. 13, 2005.
