This is not quite to the point, but I wanted to mention it anyway.

Last month I was called up for Jury duty and was lucky or unlucky enough to have been selected. This is a side efect to voting, at least in Texas, where the people that vote tend to be the ones that are called up to Jury duty.

In my case I was not entirely pleased, as it turned out to take up an entire week of my time, and it was not a very interesting case. No evil murderer or drug pusher to send up the river, just a couple having a custody case over their children.

¿Does this seem heartless of me? Perhaps.

Now back to the point of my interuption into the counterpoint:

Voter information booklets are still the pits, but they are slowly improving, although the politicians are not. In fact I had a discusion with several friends on the subject, and there are some that have not voted in years for the simple fact that they would not be voting for someone, but rather against the opposing candidate. I can not say that I blame them, and perhaps might even join them in their outlook.
