I know I know, you are sick of all the election ads, snark, and bellyaching. I am too: there was one Obama ad that we saw so many times I thought I was going to put someone's eye out if I had to see it again. Besides, god knows you don't need the likes of me telling you why I support Obama or why I am so very disappointed in McCain.
However, I think something very important gets lost during a presidential campaign, and that is whether you live in a solidly blue or red state, or somewhere in between, there are local elections and issues which are every bit as important as the national campaigns. These can often have a larger effect on our day to day lives than the presidential election. So even if you choose not to vote for president, please consider voting for the local school/library/whatever millage, state representatives, etc. If you are not sure what is on your ballot, go to your state's Secretary of State website and look for voter information. It should not be difficult to find.
However, can someone tell me what a drain commissioner does and why this is an elected position?
On another subject: Clapotis as a social disease. Hahahaha!!! The LaRousse defines Clapotis thusly: clapotis = clapotement which meaning lapping. Clears things up nicely I think. By which I mean not at all. I'll stick with the disease.
Also, I did not provide a link to the first version of the green dress. It is here.
