The wait was one hour and thirty minutes. We're talking all of Buffy. We're talking most of Smallville. I considered my patriotic duty more important than television.
The statewide races here ceased being close, but I did get to vote for the arts center bond issue and for the senior citizen center bond issue. I was joking with a fellow in line--these are my issues: libraries, hiking trails, access to Broadway plays featuring former gymnasts and skaters, schools, and museums.
Sign me up for those, and for anything that feeds the poor.
I couldn't help but think, though, that in the time I was waiting in line, I could have written 2,000 words.
