Election Day... finally a good one!

I am of course, excited about the results Tuesday. It's been a long time since we had a good one like that. 'nuff said.

I had the honor of serving as an election judge Tuesday. It was a great experience! It was fun to sit and work with others to be sure our democracy operated correctly. I was very impressed with everyone's conduct, and very closely following the laws and instructions to state mandates. And what a wide variety of people to come in and vote! Offering assistance and help to everyone who may have needed it. It's an experience I hope to repeat in the coming years.

A couple of highlights on a personal note...

My father's cousin, Jim Carlson, won his race for State Senate 38 in Eagan and Burnsville. It was close, but he won with a few points to spare! Congratulations Jim!

In Amy Klobuchar's victory speech, she mentions my Uncle, Claremont Anderson. He is the father of Stuart Anderson, my cousin, who was killed in Iraq in January 2006. You can hear it at MPR's website. She mentions my Uncle at minute marker 7:50. You'll need Realplayer to listen to it.

I'll try to post some pics tommorrow, and hopefully another movie soon.
