Elections


Back in November I remember thinking about people in Detroit waiting on line for eight hours to vote with pride. I realized that I don't know if I would make such a sacrifice for democracy (though I suppose I'm unlikely to ever vote in a district where that's a problem). But yesterday 60% of those eligible to vote in Iraq did so under the threat of beheading. Those people fucking deserve democracy.
