My email is really backed up, so I'm wading through all of the links.

American Student Hides Support for Bush

I feel so sorry for that girl.

Get Out the military vote — now

I keep calling MO and my husband's absentee ballot still hasn't arrived. The woman who works in the office has been great, and we've been discussing different options to make sure that he can vote. But I'm getting nervous!

Pessimistic Kerry supporters predict Bush will be the victor

I hope these people are right!

Went to the Orthopaedic Surgeon's office Wednesday, finished Franks's "American Soldier" while waiting. A couple with their college-age daughter were there (the daughter looks to already (!!) have a lower herniated disc), and I ran into them in the parking lot later, and saw the young lady's car with pro-Bush stickers, &c; we got into a conversation, and she related how lonely it was attending a "liberal arts" college in this mid-Missouri city--the glares, stares, and overt hostility she experiences.

I see a few Kedwards bumper stickers on vehicles and hardhats at work, but I see an equal number of "Union Member for Bush" style stickers also.

Am proud of you, Sarah--keep on Russell's absentee ballot! (although it looks like W has Missouri).
