Fresh Start Begins With a Vote

A story like this former film hottie getting a DUI would line up front page headlines.

Instead if you read the morning paper in just about any "Super Tuesday" state you'll see that Americans went out in record numbers to vote for their presidential canadiate.

Minnesota was no different. I like parts of each of the canadiates stances but since I don't have a party affiliation, I wasn't able to vote (Peaker was happy to explain why). Driving by one of the caucus voting areas last night and the school was packed like they were giving away Kirby Puckett bobblehead dolls.

Label me proud to be an American for the first time in a while. People aren't liking the current direction the country is going and are doing the one thing they know they can control. They get to vote.

By the way, I chose Ribeye. And to the discussion in the comments area of Otis' great live blogging this quote...

The aim of an argument or discussion should not be victory, but progress.

-- Joseph Joubert (1754-1824) French Philosopher
