Last night we got together with some like-minded neighbors to kvetch about the election. It was tons of fun, and we are eternally grateful to the host for tracking us down (she showed up at our door with an invitation, based on our yard signs). Then this morning we got up before the crack of dawn to bundle the kids into the car and go vote. We actually got there before the polling place opened (6 am!) and there was already a line of forty or fifty people. We voted, I dropped everyone off at home to get dressed, and I went and got celebratory donuts.
It has been a good day so far.
Please, exercise your right to vote.
Take your kids to show them how important it is.
And then get donuts.
