I was volunteering at a community event benefiting my employer, at a small park plaza located downtown. I don’t generally go to public events like this if I can help it — I dislike crowds. But duty called, so I went. It was a lovely, sunny, warm day. I didn’t have a lot to do during much of the day except just sit at a volunteers’ hospitality table, so had time to read the book I brought with me at intervals, and I had almost unlimited time to just watch the goings-on around me.

I live in Washington State. Our vote-by-mail primary is on February 19th, and the ballots were mailed out by the Secretary of State’s office a couple of days ago. I’ll probably get mine on Monday.
The ballots were printed before Edwards suspended his campaign, so I know his name will still be on it. And I’m going to vote for him.
