November 8, 2005


Sarah is between jobs and I worked half a day, so we took the crisp autumnal afternoon to indulge some civic-minded activities. First, we went to Fremont Baptist Church and voted in local elections. This meant filling in circles on a paper ballot and then selecting some baked goods from a table near the exit. What a country--freedom of choice and chocolate chip cookies! Then we went to the library. Boy, there sure do seem to be a lot of stinker books out there. Our branch is quite small and I didn't see anything worth reading, except maybe Mad Magazine, which has changed a lot since I read it as a kid. It's slick and colorful now with a lot of ads. What kind of person creates ads to influence children? Seems pretty dirty to me....
