Alice and I walked up to the Stratham town center to vote a few hours ago, setting out just before the polls opened. We're in New Hampshire, and everything opened here at 8 AM. Parked voters' cars line our street.
Lines were long, but wouldn't have been too bad if I wasn't already sick--I'm down, as they say, with a wicked awful cold. Anyway, long lines, got through them, went behind the curtain, filled in ballot, and slid it into the machine.
While standing in line talking, it occurred to Alice and I that Chloe--our oldest child--will be able to vote in the next presidential election. Isn't that crazy?
If you don't already know, the image on the left is from the cool Yeti-bama t-shirt from the coolest of cool design companies, Gama-Go in SF. They're all sold out, the proceeds went to the Barak's campaign.
