The storms that swept through the city’s northwest side no doubt discouraged turnout for the school-board election — well, that and the “There’s an election today?” reaction I got from folks earlier today. I resolved not to miss this one, because I’d already shot my mouth off about it, and because my particular precinct has some comparatively-hawt pollworkers.
Besides, one of the candidates actually made my decision for me — by planting a crapload of those crummy wire signs along my way home. It was an easy matter, therefore, to vote for his opponent. (I cast ballot #186 at about 5:10 pm.)
