I am so ashamed...

Last night I voted in our town's city council election. And I broke a long-standing tradition and voted for The Enemy.

The reason I did it is very simple: Ron Edinger, a Republican city councilman and by all accounts a decent-enough person, is running against a teabagger whose stated goal is to eliminate, among other things, the funding for Public Art installations that are of utmost importance in a tourist town like mine.

If the teabagger wouldn't have been on the ballot I wouldn't have voted for the Republican. But he was and I had no choice. I atoned by voting for a good Democrat on the same ballot and by immediately rushing home and washing my voting hand in rubbing alcohol - the most aggressive solvent I have in the house right now - to remove the taint.

Going somewhere they don't have Internet access. Back in a few.

I'll tell you where it was on Christmas - because it may take that long to scan in 100 rolls (no, that's not a misprint) of film.

Sanders supporters, Hillary supporters, Trump loathers...keep up the good fight.
