Today was primary day in Minnesota. Amanda and I are wearing our “I voted” stickers. We wore them to the grocery store. We were the only ones there wearing them. Of course, there were a lot of mullets, and I ain’t talking fish, which is like voting with your hair. And, the sound of the country western karaoke rises like the call of the loon above the sound of hail and thunder. Voting with noise. But we voted with a sharpie. The sharpie is mightier than the mullet, though just barely.
Speaking of politics, go visit Uncle Ted is Dead for one of the more moving tributes to Senator Ted Stevens, who died last night in a plane crash in Alaska. Good bye, Teddy.
