We Believe These Truths

"Let me understand this," my friend said four years ago. "People walked into a voting booth, knew their ballots were secret, and you still got elected?"

"Yeah," I sad. "Pretty much."

"Democracy's an amazing thing," he said.

Which, at least from the perspective of someone who didn't seek reelection, it is.

This was an extremely part-time position, a few evenings a month, with compensation to match. So now I'm going to watch more television.

Just to share an observation: it is usually not well received by guests, if you paint them. Even funny face painting is usually not welcome.
People don't got a sense of humour, no more.
