Al, shouldn't the "Yes" line of that poll read more like Meg Ryan's lines in "When Harry Met Sally?"

We're going to keep practicing for the daily anniversaries... spouse has indicated that she might even join us!

Yes indeed. In fact I cast my vote several times. I guess you may say that I stuffed the "ballot box." I even participated in early voting too.
