It's election day, at last. I agree with Chris Stevens: the idea of an election is much more interesting than the election itself, especially when the the will of the people does not coincide with my own. But the act of voting is a defining moment in any case. It's Existential.
Then again, depending on how the balllot crumbles, I may find myself agreeing with George Carlin this time tomorrow. Hope not. But if I do, I'm sure I'll get over it.
