How you know you're getting old

Fry: "When did you start caring about voting?"
Professor Farnsworth: "The very instant I became old."

I DO intend to write our Secretary of State's webmaster about the fact that the address for the Democratic caucus was, in fact, the Republican caucus. Which caused us no end of consternation, since the Republican caucus very carefully avoided advertising its presence IN ANY WAY. Only until I found myself surrounded by a curiously large number of Ron Paul supporters did I realize my error. It was like being on Slashdot, surrounded by annoying pseudo-libertarian nerds - IN REAL LIFE. (Dun Dun Duh!)

Not only did I vote - I'm a Democratic delegate now. Which is apparently like being a Freemason, without the stigma of being attached to the Illuminati so openly. My district appears to be plum full of genuinely progressive DFLers - there were resolutions on gay marriage rights, universal health care, and parrots (Not kidding. Really. SHE IS A PASSIONATE WOMAN). The coolest thing was that it was people of all ages, and they all knew the issues. They knew health care - there was a great half-hour discussion about what sort of universal healthcare our corner of Minnesota should resolve to support. We also met Keith Ellison's wife, and our state senator. It couldn't have gotten any better.

Did I mention the hot Democrat babes? I could have sworn I did.
