    I have had this sentiment for some time.

    This year, election day and the Monday preceding it were teacher workdays for public schools in my county... I doubt that was a coincidence.

    I didn't vote since I don't care. I went with permanent absentee ballot status years ago, I can vote whenever I want, stick it in the mail and never have to stand in a line. It doesn't make a difference when they make the actual polling day, mine is done and received long before that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Although then again, that would certainly make this country a lot more interesting.

    I would love to see the president in a Guy Fawkes mask.

    I will tell you guys the most logical reason for Tuesday being election day.

    Tuesday is associated with Mars, the old Roman god of war. Tuesday is, therefore, the best day for political warfare to take place.

    Hey, it works for me.

    I've said for years that the polls should be open on three consecutive days to suppress the emotionality of the event.
