Re: Did You Vote?

It took us 45 minutes to vote due to long lines and too few voting machines. Many people stood at the machines dumbly not knowing what to do, I didn't think the new computerized systems were that hard, but I empathize.

Re: Did You Vote?

Wife and I voted after she got off work, then went to a nice restaurant for dinner. Went home and watched TV election results for an hour then went to bed. This morning, I was disappointed reading the incomplete results in the Sacramento Bee. Slimeball Dolittle won. Weight-lifting, B movie actor and "doze kinda tings," back for four more years. Billions of dollars in Bond measures approved. I don't believe the majority of Callifornia voters, informed by TV commercials only, have any idea of what they were voting for or how those bonds will be paid off. 13 propositions on the ballot because our full time legislators can't make any decisions as a body, and some attention starved people will sign any petition, proposed by anybody, shoved in their face.

I am extremely happy with the national results, Rumsfeld's resignation, and the possibility that some accountability might be restored in our federdal government. But California has gone to hell in a hand basket.

Right, more like Beverly then...I remember seeing a tear in the screen
