As November 2 approaches...
"Oh, I'm registered, but I have better things to do with my time than vote."
I actually overheard a woman telling a friend this at a stoop sale today as I was walking to the subway, and I nearly tripped in surprise. I've been so obsessed with this election I sometimes forget that some people don't seem to realize THAT THE FUTURE OF THE ENTIRE PLANET IS AT STAKE. OK, deep breath. But that's really not too far off the mark.
Ted Rall breaks down the differences between Bush and Kerry. Ruben Bolling tells a gloomy story about the Most Wrong Man in the World. And Stephen Notley (who I had the good fortune of hanging out with recently on his latest journey to the U.S.), has an outsider's perspective on us Wacky Americans. Scott Bateman has oodles and oodles of reasons not to vote for that guy who never really got elected in the first place. Jen Sorensen reports on the Young Republicans' Wreck the Vote tour and gives us a handy Voter Guide. Keith Knight has a Voter Guide of his own. And Kirk Anderson has plenty of Election Fun for all.
Plus, my dad went to a Kerry rally in New Hampshire today (Sunday) and took some pictures.
OK, that's all for now. I'm going to go chew off my fingernails with nervous anticipation now.
