A Good Week for Voting

I have had a pretty good week:  one of my manuscripts was accepted for publication, I got my first Australian research grant, and my PhD student, Michael, was 'confirmed' with flying colours. And the cherry on top was being able to mail our U.S. election ballots this morning. And it's only Thursday!

So much for the secret ballot. We in the US will not find an improvement if either major candidate wins.

Proudly displaying my "I voted" button around here. We took advantage of early voting in IC. The seventeen year old was bummed that he couldn't add another lefty preference. Vindication for those days when I feel like the lamest mother in the world!

Maybe so, anonymous, but I still have hope that there will be a significant improvement for the world.

Di, I hope that you are proud that you have raised such a reasonable, intelligent child!

They have their moments...Offsets those "just keep 'em out of jail" mantra chanting days.

I have more hope than ever.
But not false optimism based on lies and deception.
