Fantastic Turnout Tonight at the "Election Day Training"

I was wondering if I was going to make myself do anything actively political (I know, I know) in the last days before The Apocalypse (or maybe The Exodus). I have serious doubts about effecting anything useful with this effort, but I responded to a friend's invitation to go to University Heights Center tonight, and I'm signed up for the whole f---ing election day as part of my friend's team for canvassing and precinct checking.

There was a phenomenal turnout tonight. I was almost a half-hour early, and the parking lot and surrounding streets were already packed with cars. I'd love to know what the count was, but there were so many people that we easily had as many out in the hall as in the big room at the top north end of the building. I mean, it was truly overwhelming.

I helped out at E-day training at a tiny strip mall in Shoreline where I'll be spending November 2nd - we had a full house too, standing room only, the Shoreline rep had to sit on the floor.

I'm getting more and more hopeful that, as I heard on the radio on the way home today, "the long national nightmare is just about over." The people are activated and they are not gonna take it any more.
