First, sorry for the lack of posts last week. Was out sick on Tuesday and was too busy to post the rest of the while while I played catchup.
Here’s what I’m thinking about:
Don’t know if this makes me apathetic, but I didn’t watch one second of Monday’s presidential debate. Of course, it was going up against Game 7 of the National League Championship Series and the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. I watched part of the first debate and almost all of the second one. Don’t know that I heard anything to sway my vote. The debates were good theater and gave the news channels something to talk about. It will be interesting to see how comes out on top.
2. Why vote early?
Early voting started in Illinois on Monday. I can see if you’re going to be out of town on Election Day why you would cast an early ballot, but just going early to go early doesn’t make much sense to me. There’s something special about going to the polls with the masses on Election Day. Sure, you might have to wait in line for a couple of minutes, but it’s not like you’re going to the DMV or the doctor’s office. I’ll be there on Nov. 6.
