Go Vote

Congratulations. If you are reading this blog, you (probably) live in a country that has enjoyed 44 consecutive bloodless power transitions*, a feat unreplicated in the history of mankind. However you feel about the present state of national affairs, and however you feel about who wins tonight, get out there and exercise your civic privileges, and afterwards, celebrate that tomorrow there will be no civil war.

*I do realize that the American Civil War was a bloody and drawn-out exception in part touched off by Lincoln's election to the presidency.
