Tomorrow is the big day. It is the chance, after two long years, to give Donald Trump, and the Republican Party which foisted him on us, a giant fuck you. I'll be going in first thing in the morning to cast my straight-ticket Democratic ballot. It might make a difference for U.S. Senator and the statewide positions, but it will be meaningless for Congress and State House and Senate. But it will be cathartic. It is already raining, so after work tomorrow, I'll get the animals fed, make supper, then crack my first beer and turn on the TV and start blogging the election results. Please tune in, and feel free to comment. In the time between now and then, here are a few stories for you to enjoy:
