blog the vote

Here is my voting story. It is actually about watching Cali vote for the first time and getting so choked up that this little kid I had watched grow up was casting a vote in a major election (this was 2004). Some other folks in the room laughed when she did not know where to slide the paper ballot (yes, we had paper ballots in that election) and the mother tiger in me jumped out and announced to one and all that it was her first election ever and she was just so excited about being able to vote. Gosh, I hope I never lose the enthusiasm she demonstrated that day.

Vote, folks, please. And, for those who hate when I blog about anything other than books, the book blogs are coming right up. So, settle down.
