A couple of weeks ago I took this photo before diving into a burrito from papalote. I thought it was a good companion to have while briefing myself for tomorrow’s General Election. Although I vote-by-mail, I still procrastinated on completing the ballot with my #2 pencil, until now.
Before the San Francisco Giants won The World Series this evening, I watched an episode of Charlie Brown on hulu. Unbeknownst to me, in this episode titled, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: It’s the Great Pumpkin… Linus, Lucy’s younger brother, decides to run for student body president. It was a cute, clever, relevant episode that lightly touched on the bureaucracy of an election and its electoral candidates.
I do hope that everyone stays safe tonight—don’t forget to vote tomorrow. Though your voice will be hoarse and your body still reeking of alcohol from the weekend; this election requires us to come together as a community similarly as we are tonight. GO GIANTS!!
