    My wife and I are almost always among the first people to vote in our ward, but today we were numbers 77 and 78 to show up when were usually in the teens. There was actually a line (which almost never happens) though it still wasn't a long wait (about ten minutes.)

    We vote in the same ward that Ed Rendell used to (he doesn't anymore, since he and his wife split up and he doesn't live around the corner from us now.) But even when he did, we seldom saw many people out that early to vote. We did usually get the TV stations showing up to wait for Ed and interview whoever they could in the meantime. Both my wife and I have been on the local news more than once because of this, since the TV folks would pretty much grab anyone who seemed to be able to string two words together for an interview. I guess they hated to waste the time waiting with getting some tape to pad out their election coverage. Alas, they've abandoned us now that we don't have Ed anymore.
