Election Day... Finally

Wow, its getting CRAZY here in Chi-Town. They're re-scheduling trains, closing streets, and enforcing parking bans in anticipation of today: Election Day. And with the unseasonably nice weather, the turnout should be HUGE. If you are coming downtown have a plan to get in and a plan to get out: You will have both Commuter Railway Blues and Why Don't You Drive syndrome.

Speaking of the election, remember what Neil Peart said; "If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice." No matter who you vote for to be the next US president, Barack Obama, John McCain, Bob Barr (That's for you Neil) or someone else crazy enough to want the job, get out and do it. Because there's often more than just the next president on the line. Nobody Voted for this Guy could actually be about a governor with a 13% approval rating, a senator, a representative, a judge, a county coroner, or even hugely important state issues, like the Illinois Constitutional Convention (or Con-con) which could have major implications in the Land of Lincoln.

So don't be the guy in Smarter 'n Better 'n You... Well, unless other people ARE smarter 'n better 'n you. Yee-Haw!
