If you think this was scary, see how you feel if Donald Drumpf becomes president!
I miss the old voting booths that I had always used. They gave you privacy and then you lowered that huge lever and you felt your vote was counted for sure. I now have to accept that software which is hackable, will be counted fairly. Nothing’s perfect. Fortunately this new system functioned as intended yesterday!
When I was fourteen I took the test for Stuyvesant high school and actually passed. I took the easy way out and went to Music & Art because I knew the academic demands would be much less. These kids were most likely from “Stuy” and I can’t blame them for being happy. At that age it’s possible to be happy under almost any circumstances. As you get older I think every bad bit of bad news, whether it be political or just another senseless bombing in the middle east, has a way of getting under your skin. The advice I often get is “If you can’t change it, don’t worry about it” If everyone felt that way, nothing would get done. I don’t know how I would have reacted to 9/11 when I was fifteen. I might have been like all the “tough guys” who wanted to “Nuke ’em All”. I’m proud that I haven’t become a conservative guy in my old age. It’s so easy to do…
