Little things you should know

It's election night. Here in my area there was a bomb threat that sent all the voters in a 75% dem ward to a new polling place. I volunteered at the office where ALL of the Wisconsin voters who needed voting assistance or a ride to the polls had their phones mysteriously fail this afternoon.

Think the republicans love a clean campaign?

(FYI: calls were not being received at the Statewide Obama campaign number today. BUT- people who called and asked for rides to the polls and were disconnected by phone failures, we got their numbers and we called them back.)

Maybe in four years from now we will welcome everyone's vote. Maybe by then Americans won't hope that the way to power is through suppression of the will of the American people.

Ha! With Germaine Gregarious as my running mate, I get warnings about explosives all of the time. fortunately, they only affect a few poll workers and volunteers...

Those are some big maybes, Jess. But after last night's results, who knows? Maybe both things are possible. Maybe anything is possible!

Way to go blue, Wisconsin!

A local Black church was torched within an hour of Obama's declared victory.

Coincidence, here in the Bluest of the Blue States? I think not.

Racism lives, and knows extremes we can only have nightmares about.

Pray for our brother Barak. He's gonna need it.
