    ...a smart young woman, and two terrific parents.

    And they say that one person can't make a difference.

    I can relate, because my Father's Day present from my son this year was his registering to vote in the Dem primary in Connecticut.

    He voted for Ned Lamont in August, and did so again a few weeks ago.

    He didn't work for the campaign (despite my encouragement), and didn't even put a sign out on the lawn of the house he shares with 3 other UConn undergrads ("Look, dad, two of my roomates are dickhead reactionaries when it comes to politics, and I have to live with them, so no sign.")

    But he paid attention and voted, and that's something.
