  • We should all do our homework

    I don't consider myself to be a "political person." I don't watch the presidential debates. I don't obsess over the polls. I don't hang on every word of the pundits. To be honest, I never give it that much thought.

    In the past, I've picked up bits of information here and there and formed my opinions slowly. Often, I've made my choices the day before I cast my vote.

    During the last presidential election, I couldn't make up my mind at all. I stepped up to the voting machine, closed the curtain and stared at the ballot. I was hoping for some last minute inspiration.
