Well, tonight is Election Night, and there have been the predictable "why do so few vote?" news articles. The familiar litany of reasons is invoked: indecipherable ballots, too many steps between the parking lot and voting booth, weekday voting, citizenship requirements, etc. But never do we hear the far less elaborate proposition: some people are just ignorant, apathetic slobs.
Prognostication: various stuffed shirts will holler and spit at each other on various TV programs, and the hollering and spitting will continue tomorrow, the day after, ad infinitum. The sun will rise tomorrow, and we will all get up to start another day.
