It's 0 degrees, but cheerily sunny and sparklingly icy:
I cast my vote and as I walk into the hallway outside the room with the voting booths, this sign hits me in the face:
Obvious wisecrack: I know, I heard the latest Barack Obama speech.
Anyway, yes, I vote in a church, here in the heart of the liberal politics.
Now, let's go and get to work.
AND: This post shows all the things that interest me more than on-the-ground politics: beauty, religion, humor, rhetoric, photography... But someone just reminded me that what people want to know is: How's the turnout? I arrived around 11 and didn't have to wait, but the woman who checked me in said they'd had over 400 people so far and that was "pretty good." There was a regular flow of people in and out of the place. Here on campus, I don't see anyone passing out fliers or trying to talk to passersby. It seems like a normal (cold) day. So, from my little vantage point, I'd say there's a good but not insane turnout.
