Things not going as planned...

Update on school levy vote: It was a renewel levy and it passed by a 381-200 margin. 581 voters out of a town with a population of 6300. I don't know how many registered voters are in Rittman, but I'm sure that it's considerably more than 581. Update #2: The number of voters in the Wayne County precincts in Rittman who voted in the presidential election in November was 1511.

Well...I left the house this morning and picked Adam up. I then found out that we were going to Mansfield and not Massillon. Then Adam thought he had told me the wrong time, so he called to confirm the appointment. Well, it turns out that this person did not write the appointment down and had double booked, so he had to reschedule. But I also forgot the WIXYcam. I took Adam back to his apartment and went home.

I still had a day of vacation, and being Cinco de Mayo, I decided that Kathy and I were going to her favorite Mexican restaurant, El Canelo. We ate very well for 14 dollars.

Now, we also had to vote today as there was one issue on the ballot. We were the only ones there to vote at the time and numbers 36 and 37 for the day. that was at three o'clock. I wonder where all the ACORN people were when it was the time to get out this vote. I feel local issues are MORE IMPORTANT than national ones. I also wonder how people who registered specifically to vote for the presidential election are going to feel when they get called for jury duty? I also wonder if I would want to go to trial with a jury comprised of some of these folks who obviously have a "herd mentality." Cliff Note: I might as well get more than the radio people upset with what I post.

I will say this again. I feel that this country's political ills will not be cured until we have a strong third party. It has to start at the local level.

Cliff,I have to agree on the strong third party! Especially if it is not masked as a division of the republican and or democratic parties.
As I have suspected of some of the indepent candidates for president have been.
