Print Story Keep Left: a Texas Chronicle
This trip sponsored by McDonald's iced coffee.

After my travels to the taxing hellhole that is Massachusetts, I had to get more liberty and freedom, so I drove to Texas.

A continuation of my previous diary.

Inside: I destroy a racist hat.

Print Story What if they gave an election and nobody came?

I had a hard time figuring out how to vote in this election; harder than most. It's not that there were no choices to be made -- the Democracy represented by Phil Angelides is somewhat enormously different than the Democracy represented by Steve Westly, for example -- but I could never summon the energy to care enough to investigate those differences, or opine about them. Some of it is that I spent the last two weeks of May working hard, being a bridesmaid, and fighting off the evils of strep throat; but the interest had been small before those weeks, and never revived with my health. Nor was it just me; turnout in this election was the lowest since 1920.

The most boring election in modern times yielded the lowest turnout in modern times.

In't work brilliant?! You can, like, wake up early, get on a train, an' everything! Then you get to big office block with no windows, and spend all day typing away with people shouting at you!
