It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

lineblogging the democratic primary

Here it is: I am standing in a lengthy line (really) to vote in a Democratic primary in Ama-freaking-rillo. Many people sound like new voters, with that odd, determined, yay-democracy look on their faces. Many seem angry. One man said he was a Democrat ''at least until November".

Good-bye, red tide. We got yer legacy right here, George W. Bush.
