[Note: this is a rare cross-post between the mrontemp and Empoprise-IE blogs.]
I went to my polling place in Ontario this morning. Although it was more crowded than I have ever seen it, I'm really comparing apples and oranges, since I usually vote at 7:00 am but voted at 7:35 am this year. They handed out ballots by last name, and luckily the A-F last name line was very short.
I then went on to Starbucks after voting and got my free tall coffee. Thanks to Franklin Avenue for the tip.
As my long-time readers know, my blogs tend to go in spurts depending upon what is happening in my life at the moment. They get really techy around Oracle OpenWorld time, they'll get really theatrical next week, but today they'll obviously be political. So here's how things will probably divvy up as the day, and evening, progresses:
- Inland Empire-specific stuff will be in the Empoprise-IE blog and my @empoprises Twitter account. You can also check my empoprises FriendFeed account.
- More general political stuff, as well as religion, television, and radio items pertaining to this election, can be found at the mrontemp blog, my @oemperor Twitter account, and my ontarioemperor FriendFeed account.
- I suspect that most of the conversation will be on FriendFeed; check http://friendfeed.com/ontarioemperor/comments if you're interested in discussions.
- I'll also be reading what other people say, and this stuff, in addition to appearing on the aforementioned ontarioemperor FriendFeed account, will also appear on my mrontemp Google Reader Shared Items. There may be local stuff on my empoprises Google Reader Shared Items also. Incidentally, I probably will not be following my usual practice of spacing out my shares, so expect to be overwhelmed.
- On the odd chance that there's some music-related item (e.g., a battle between Charlie Daniels and Ann & Nancy Wilson), there's always Empoprise-MU. (I'm not even going to link to Empoprise-NTN.)
P.S. Because I voted, I was late coming to work and heard a bit of Rush Limbaugh in the car. I'll grant him one good line; he claimed that it took Obama 15 minutes to vote because he was looking for the place where he could vote "Present." Sphere: Related Content
