Steady Traffic at the Polls

My Henrico County polling place (Tuckahoe Elementary) had a steady stream of folks voting this morning, and we got to use the new touch screens. They seemed to work very well (much more so than those dreaded punch cards). The crowd seemed smaller than it was in the '04 presidential, but that's to be expected.

Campaign signs bloomed like weeds around the parking lot.

And I think my wife cancelled out all of my votes. If the Leahy household is any indication of how Henrico will vote (based upon my very, very unscientific sample), it may be a close-run thing.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
