Miscellany · Past life: Living in France 2008

Absentee ballot

Mailed it Friday. (A little thing like living overseas for three months isn’t going to muck up my perfect voting record.) Everyone here in France is paying rapt attention to our election. I am asked almost daily about it.

Like this election isn’t important enough with two presidential candidates who would do very different things with their power (especially when it comes to the Supreme Court)…now we have an immense and complex economic meltdown. If you and I know each other and you do not vote (assuming you’re eligible), please don’t tell me–I couldn’t stand the disappointment.
