Friday, October 20 is...

The Bab's Birth (Baha'i)
Kenyatta Day (Kenya)
Guru Granth Sahib (Sikh)
Lailat al-Qadr (Islam)

It's a big day for holidays, but a slow day for posting. Just a few things today:

Two candidates are already on the ballot to run for the city council seat formerly held by Archie Brooks. As many as nine nore could appear. If only all elections were this popular. It's possible that past city council elections were decided by less than 11 voters.

I've missed Chelsea's style of storytelling, and I'm glad it's back. If you're not familiar with it, check out this post, titled "The Winners' Table."

Finally, Ted Sporer is back, and if Blogger ever lets me republish again I'll note that in the links on your right.

Thanks for the publicity brother.

Don't you think the candidate participation is great? We need more people involved in the system, at every level and in almost every way.

Mike Mauro has an old news clip in office of a new democracy in Africa where people waited in line for 3 days to vote. We need to have a little more of that spirit.
