I voted this morning -- absolutely no one in line at 8:40 in the morning. Surprising. Anyway, the deed is done for me. The only thing left now is the waiting -- but hope and help are on the way!

Saw John Edwards and Jon Bon Jovi last week in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was great fun. Amazing how orchestrated these things are -- like mini-rock shows. But it was great anyway.

My voting experience was easy as pie -- unlike my son's. Unfortunately, my son is in jail and has been for several weeks. (It was inevitable, given his determination to live the thug life. Fortunately, this means we can get him into a 2-year rehab program and hopefully break the pattern of drugs and criminality he's been into.) He is a registered voter and not a felon, so he's eligible to vote. I got him an absentee ballot and asked the sheriff in charge of the jail to help. He stonewalled me for several hours, but once he made up his mind that this was OK, he quickly took care of things and my son voted. Another jailer told me that in her 12 years of working there, I was the first person to ever bring an absentee ballot to the jail. Strange. But he voted for Kerry/Edwards -- one more vote for our next president!
