An “I Voted” sticker from Harris County Elections

I voted today. That was unexpectedly hard.

I remember when the elections people used to beg people to please come out to vote because so few people did. Now there are huge lines, which is good. But there were partisans standing there shouting at us waiting in line, which is bad. But even though I had to wait an hour it was all very organized, which is good. Except that all of the spaces in the parking lot were taken up by the partisans camped out with all of their gear so I had to park a block away, which is bad.

China: “Not every nation wants to be a democracy. The world should be run by what the majority of the people want.”

The rest of the world: “Thatʼs the definition of democracy.”

China: “Hey, look! George Floyd!”
