Arkansas Results - Forget the Secretary of State website.

The Secretary of State website is reporting 0% - ZERO PERCENT - of the vote as reported.

The NY Times website is doing some better. [link:https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2022/11/08/us/elections/results-arkansas.html|

ON EDIT: The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette is also doing a good job. [link:https://www.arkansasonline.com/ballot2022generalballotmeasure/|

It's official. The US government has said that I am old.

For years, my definition of middle age has been "too young for Medicare but too old for women to care."

I received my Medicare card today. It's official, I'm now elderly. It's all downhill from here.

I made an old guy appearance at the local ROTC detachment today.

The ROTC detachment at my alma mater is restarting a cadet group that started back in my day but had been allowed to lapse.

The times are very different than in my days as a cadet just after the end of Vietnam. The cadets look infinitely more like soldiers than we did in my day. They were all sincere and intelligent - if younger than I remember being as a cadet. I was impressed by them.

The future of the Army seems to be in good hands.
