    saved us the postage...and they were offering a free loaf of bread...I was too proud to take it...even though we could have used it.

    so many factors have led to this...and I fear it is only going to get worse...I don't expect the politicians to work to change it...not to their advantage.

      Now I walk to my local polling place to vote in person, because that's how it's mostly done here. But like most active members of this site, I'm not exactly representative of most Americans, on so many levels.

      The challenge is how to engage all those millions of people who are barely even aware that it's election day and that so much is at stake. I don't think that cynicism is the main problem, although it is a problem. I think that plain old apathy and detachment is the real problem.
