It's a great day in America. One of my neighbors just waited an hour and a half in line to vote — in our teeny, tiny little Alabama neighborhood. I couldn't be happier — it's what participatory democracy is all about. Seeing people engaged in and taking part in an election is one of the pinnacles of the American political process. Personally, I would be willing to wait all day.
Probably, that is because, in addition to being a devout believer in our democracy, I'm also a knitter.
is the start of a hat I'm knitting as a Christmas present. I figure I can make a lot of progress on it while standing in line, chatting with friends, watching my 18 year old vote for the first time, and enjoying the beautiful weather. I can't wait.
Go out and vote!
