By the time you read this, I'll already have voted -- the single most reflexive political act of my life -- in the single most dispiriting election I can remember. As I haven't missed an election since my first vote in 1968, that says something.
So what's happened to this generation? Have our schools so utterly failed in teaching how important the right to vote is in a democracy?
America has apparently not gotten the memo that our democracy is for sale. It seems the saps plan to have their vote counted, and last I looked it is votes that we count here... not coins.
