I'm Still Around

Tomorrow is election day and I have yet to finish up mine and Ray's ballots (yes it's legal to do that as long as he signs it). He's back in hospital again so I'll carry it over there and then down to the Registrar in plenty of time tomorrow.

Procrastination and an unwillingness to wade through the California propositions are to blame. The elective offices themselves are a no-brainer. I'll hold my nose in some cases but I'll vote.

I am so sick and tired of this election. The unending t.v. ads, each one nastier than the one which went before. Bush with his arm around some neo-con trying desperately for votes every time I turn around. The "independent" court in Iraq coming up with a verdict 4 days before the election.

Our CA voters seem to have the attention span of gnats. They've forgotten all about our "special election" and the defeat of everyone of Arnold's pet projects and are ready to elect him once again. The best I can hope for is to retain the Democratic Legislature.

Oh well. I'll be glued to the t.v. along with everyone else tomorrow to see what the rest of the country will do.

And then I'll try to get back here more often.

    Welcome back, Ann, and I hope the best for Ray.

    A clothes pin has long been my most important voting tool...(: There are so many times when I walk in there, and shake my head in despair. A gentleman behind me, in line to vote in the 2004 elections quipped; "I'm here to exercise my right to futility."
