I went to vote in the primary today. There was no line and I was back home in about 20 minutes. I thought I'd check the local news to see what they were saying about voter turnout. I was reminded why I hate local news and why I never watch it. First there was the "HORRIBLE WEATHER!!" part of the story. HORRIBLE WEATHER = it was raining. Then I kept hearing about the "LONG LINES" and in a much more subtle tone "this morning". Then it was the "RECORD TURNOUT", followed by a quiet "for a primary." Yes, I'm aware that some polling places may have had more people, but I bet if that were the case, the news team would have been there to film it. It will be a very long time before I choose to see any local news again.
You know what I prefer over all of this rain?
