Rick, I share your pain.

I tried to make the best of a very bad situation when I voted earlier. My eleven year old daughter asked whether she might go with my wife and I to the polling place and observe the process to learn more about voting. I was delighted that she asked and to include her; we studied the ballot together, read and reasoned through the state questions together, double checked for inadvertent mistakes (inadvertently voting for either/or in the presidential election, as an example) on our ballot when we were done together, fed our ballot into the machine together, and then discussed the process afterward, including the necessity of voter registration and verification, and the fact of the secret ballot. I even allowed my daughter to "complete the line" in the various races, as is the process on Oklahoma ballots.

All good on this day of infamy, Nov. 4, 2008.

Whatever happens, you have done your best to make sure your daughter lives in an America she can be proud of.
