A Dull Tuesday?
I know, a pretty dull picture. This was Tuesday in the Community Center auditorium, which is unbearably dull looking any day of the week. Looks like a movie set for a mental hospital mutiny. But no, these are voting booths, standing and waiting for the electorate to come forth and issue their will. 35% of the registered voters in Mendocino county did just that. Remarkably, that's considered a pretty high turnout. But why isn't it more like 90%, okay 70%, every time? And that's not even counting people eligible to register who don't. I guess it's just too dull. I wonder if they'll feel that way when November rolls around.
