Democracy!

I’m in Largo, FL. As I drove to dinner, I saw this:

On the right center, there is a blue sign – it’s the sign for Obama for America headquarters here. The line is people lined up to register to vote. The line stretches down the front of the building, around the corner to the south, then to the next road down, and back west two more blocks!

After I left dinner about an hour later, the line had dropped some, but was still a block long in back of the building.

This makes me proud to be American. These people were lined up, probably a lot after work, in 90F temps and some humidity, to get registered to exercise a basic right (and responsibility). I estimate there were 300+ people in line. I hope they all vote after registering.
