Just stay home

Normally this is where I’d encourage you to go make your voice heard and head to the polls, but jeez, why bother? In the Arlington area where I live, at least, the ballot is almost 50% uncontested seats. The only sections up for grabs are Sheriff and County Board, two slots I don’t have any strong opinion about. I’m not sure I’m even comfortable with the fact that Sheriff is an elected position – enforcing the law should be non-denominational, in my opinion.

If you’re in my area and strongly partisan, I’d advise you to print out the ballot from the above link. The evil electronic vote-eating machine we Arlingtonites use doesn’t identify party affiliation for County Board or Clerk.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
