An ultimate comic mash-up, and civic duty, and stuff

My two favorite comic properties of all time (at least today) are Peanuts, as in Charles Schulz, and Sandman, as in Neil Gaiman. So when I saw this I could only count myself thankful I hadn’t been drinking any liquids at the moment. I discovered the link in Neil Gaiman’s journal; his only remark was “Good grief!”

Today is the real primary election day (as opposed to that stupid, pointless exercise Michigan had in January), and I voted before coming to work. They weren’t giving out gold stars (my precinct is in a middle school; I guess they only give gold stars in elementary school), but I still felt good because I got to vote for the zoo. A very tiny tax increase to support the Detroit Zoo, that is. I voted for some people too, I guess. Almost every race had exactly one candidate per party, the one exception being the state house of representatives where, somehow, we had seven choices on the Democratic side. I don’t know what’s worse, having exactly one choice, or having a bunch of choices you know nothing about. What’s worse is, the elections workers wouldn’t let me bring my dart board in so I could make a choice easily.

There are developments on the website front and decisions to be made. Watch this space.


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
