Second time was the charm here. At 2:45pm there was no queue at all (and fortunately, since it's still raining).
One the way back, I heard my first political advertisement of the season. (I don't normally listen to radio or watch TV.)
In portentous tones: "The Democrats are planning over a trillion dollars of new spending. They're planning to double or even triple your taxes, even if your family earns as little as $42,000 a year. Families who are already struggling. There's only one way to prevent it..." Then McCain comes on at the end, "I'm John McCain and I approve this message."
There's no law against this, right? How could there be, who would enforce it? And how? The worst that happens is that someone's forced to apologize or retract, but how can that matter even a little when it's already election day?
I actually thought election-day adverts were prohibited, shows how much I know!
