Decision Time

We have finally arrived at Election Day. We will know by late today, or more likely tomorrow, whom we elected to the various offices that govern our nation, state, and locality. We will know if we’re going to gamble or not. We will know if we are going to be paying higher taxes to support the failed Dirigo health plan or not. And we will know the results of other local and state referenda.

I’ve said over the past weeks all I can say about the various issues and I suspect anyone who reads this with any regularity or anyone who cares knows exactly where I stand. Today I will say no more.

Except…you have until your polls close tonight to cast your ballots if you haven’t already done so. I hope you all will have voted by then.

I arrived at the high school at 8:10 and was out the door with my "I Voted Today!" sticker by 8:30! It felt good to do my civic duty.

However, I still maintain that the new-fangled ballot sucker contraption we got back in '96 is far less reliable than the nice old man who pulled back the lid on the big red, white and blue box for us. I miss him. Voting was so much more fun back then...
