The Technical Problems Kicked My Butt
For reasons only computer whizzes can fathom, the html was completely screwed up in the first half of my long posting, which I made by copying and pasting all five of my articles together. I fixed most of it and it reverted to the complete blobform it started out as, and I had to do it all over again. That's why my "Meet the Candidates" post was so late. Hope you enjoyed it. I started a rant and checked myself at the beginning of the post. I may return to it some day. Vote April 5. It will be my boring mantra until election day. I am pretty passionate about voting. Ever since my college boyfriend's brother-in-law lost an election by one vote in an election I forgot to vote in, I have prioritized voting whenever I can. It also became pretty important to me after I took a course in college on the history of women in America. Learning the history of women's sufferage makes me ashamed when I'm tempted to blow off voting for whatever selfish reason I have at the time. Finally, I remember my own motto: If you don't like how things are, don't just stand there and bitch. When you're done with all the complaining, DO something about it! Voting is one way to accomplish this task. According to current wisdom, voting in the upcoming election may be a way to fell a counterstrike at Scott Walker by voting out his judge buddy. I have more research to do on this issue, but it's entirely possible that that could happen. It would be a shame if a good judge lost his job because an idiot is governor. The ads have been hot and heavy, and I have to verify a few things, but if Prosser is culpable for one particularly egregious claim against him, I will also vote to boot his butt. Oh, and if any of you computer gurus out there can tell my why the html fails on stuff I copy and paste from Word, I'd be grateful for both the reason and a solution. I probably should have borrowed my daughter's scanner and scanned the $%&*()ing things in. Ah well, live and learn.
