promote the vote

It's Election Day! Finally, all the roadside signage, all the TV and radio ads and all the bumper stickers put in a hard day's work and either prove to be worth their weight in victory or are worthless.

As Americans, we should take every opportunity to speak through the electronic voting machines (with thanks to Kell and his staff) by selecting the candidates who will best serve our great state. That's not to say that the best man wins each time, but this is what a democracy is all about. It's what the extraordinary men and women of our military are giving their lives for in Iraq. It's about being able to speak your mind in print, on the air, across the internet and over the radio waves. It's about sending your kids to whichever school you choose. It's about worshipping in your church, or choosing not to. And it's something so many of us take for granted. So, get out there and VOTE today! Kell would be proud.

I talked to my mom this afternoon. She had just left from voting. Big Deb rocks the vote.

Yes, I have had a special affection for Lou Holtz for a few years now. I make Vic watch his commentary on ESPN during college football. I can't get enough.

ps: Do make snide remarks about Hugh Laurie? No. No, I don't. I only ask for return respect regarding my feelings for Lou.

You are cordially invited to meet me at LJ's for a cup of coffee on an undecided December day, 2007. We can invite Claire and LT, so as not to appear exclusive.
