Voting Day

I don't recall that I have ever felt this good about the act of casting my vote. Not even the first time I voted, something like a century ago. I don't think Obama needed my vote here in California, but "No on 8" sure as hell did. I went just before lunch, right after the rain stopped, and there was no line.

There were a couple of guys about 102' away from the poll waving "No on 8" signs, so I went over and shook their hands.

I was getting the mail out of my mailbox and my elderly neighbor came out to talk about how excited she was about having voted today. She's been jealous because my Obama poster is bigger than hers.

    Maybe not a century, but I'm sure it feels that way. You're not that old, despite the gray hair.

    Thanks to everyone who votes, no matter who/what/how/where. We get what we vote for, so everyone has a vested interest in it.

    And thanks to Jayhawk for his punditry these last months. It's been interesting! Now on to a whole new thing to pontificate on... heh heh heh

    P.S. I hope the media networks don't go overboard in calling east coast, etc results too early, because that could affect non-closed polls here in the western states. Bad media, spank spank.
