Good morning! I am currently in line to do my civic duty. I’m about 25 mins in, having spent the first stretch of my wait playing Nintendo DS a la America Ferrera.
People are light-hearted, chatting. A twentsomething woman was teaching a fortysomething man how to text using T9 instead of multi tap. A middle-aged woman has theorized these lines dissuade undecided voters from hitting the polls. The bald guy behind me has his left ear pierced with a stud–without irony. The young grad student ahead of me is dutifully grading papers.
This is democracy in action!
