I Voted

I handed in my absentee ballot at City Hall today. Voted in two contested races -- Obama and Kerry -- but nobody but Democrats in the other five races on the ballot.

I was amazed to see eight McCain-Palin lawn signs as I drove to my hairdresser's today. Surely the McCain campaign is not so foolish as to waste money in this state, where the Republican Party is virtually moribund? Or maybe they are that foolish.

On the three ballot questions, I voted against eliminating the state income tax, in favor of changing the marijuana laws to a system of civil penalties, and in favor of eliminating dog racing.

It always feels good to vote.
