I'll have to agree...

I'm gonna have to agree with Mr. Edwardson on the sad voter turn out by the people of Ketchikan. 1500 people? Seriously?!! We are fortunate enough to live in a country where we have the privilage and the right to vote, yet, we choose to just not show up? Does anybody care anymore?

For the record, I voted. I have family and friends who fought for this country and some paid with their lives so I have the right to vote. I will not disrespect those people by not giving so little of my time to make a difference.

Think about it, apparently, myself, Chaz, and 1,498 other people were the only ones who voted that last election day.
