Seriously, Mr. Romney gives me the Creeps. :/ Obama might not have kept (all) his promises (but that was - to me - clear from the beginning, because I never thought he had a real chance to), but the other guy makes me shudder. I keep my fingers crossed!

Just finished voting a few minutes ago.
It is sad how many people don't know which voting precinct they are in. There were two polls set up at the voting location for two different precincts like it always is at that polling place. No map for the uniformed and the poll workers were not very helpful. I vote at every opportunity instead of just the presidential elections and have my voter's registration card too, so I am well aware of my precinct and polling place.

No, :( . The Nor'easter is dumping all that snow on top of the damage. My worry is the people who still don't have power and no way to get to shelter.

I'm hearing good things about the Occupy people delivering aid to the people on Staten Island, etc.

I learn about it on the internet. Here's a link:

Here's more:

They were annoying and in the way. Now they're making themselves useful.
