today i got a lovely thing in my mailbox.
more about that later, maybe.
today i also put my ballots in the ballot box. i was happy because there were exactly six candidates i like for state senate, and six spots on the ballot.
less happy because there were three candidates i liked for representative, but could only pick two.
super happy that often i know or have met the people who run for office. it;s not because i'm well-connected, it;s because it's that kind of state.
national politics make me spit with rage. local politics make me happy.
