Supersized Democracy

In what has to be an all-time low in my experience as a voter, I just received word today that my polling place will be in a McDonald's restaurant.

When we voted at the Van Ness Avenue School, the kids were brought in to sit in the gym bleachers so they could see democracy in action. It made you really proud to cast your vote. Plus you knew no election hanky-panky could happen with all those little faces watching you.

If only we had a Starbucks in the neighborhood that could be used as a polling place, it wouldn't be so bad...
