On the soapbox

They had run out of "I voted" stickers at the county building where I went to cast my ballot, so here is my own virtual version. If you do nothing else this year, please go vote. It took me all of five minutes to cast my ballot. Five minutes. Personally, I'm hoping my vote in those five minutes will help change the course of history. Obviously, I want my candidate to win. But do what is right for you. Think about which candidate is best for your future, the futures of your children, your grandchildren, your parents, your grandparents -- and for the future of your country. Think of all the places in the world where citizens don't have the rights we do.
In my book, if you don't vote you have lost your right to complain.
