THE PLANK NOVEMBER 4, 2008
Kitty and I vote early--we arrived at our polling place at 6:40 this morning, and the lines were already so long that we didn't emerge until an hour later. But going to the polls with your neighbors is a special privilege in a democracy, and we enjoy doing it, particularly among people without whom I would never have been elected dogcatcher, let alone governor three times. Kitty is now campaigning for Obama in New Hampshire. I teach graduate students on Tuesdays here at Northeastern, so I will be preparing for my graduate class all day. We will be hitting the Democratic headquarters this evening.
