I was recently in San Louis Obispo (home to Cal Poly) and sauntered into bubble gum alley. There is a tradition of sticking your gum to a brick wall inside this alley that has been going on for decades. Supposedly every few years the business owners get fed up with it and try to power wash it, but judging by the festering mantle of Trident and core of Bazooka Joe, I'd guess its here to stay. My friend says that the sweet and slightly rancid smell is a real treat on hot days, but it was relativly tame while I was there.

When new hope surfaces.
hearts and minds are lifted.
creativity is borne out of new hope.
problems become projects.
impossible is eliminated from the vocabulary.

Hopefully, by the end of the day, you will all be wearing the top sticker (and not the bottom one). Got my voting done early today, after waiting for 45 minutes in line at my polling place on Cherry Street - not bad at all. Hang in there, swing state voters!
Also, if you are in proximity of a Starbucks or Ben & Jerry's, you can take advantage of freebie coffee or ice cream for voting today. So go ahead, indulge your inner corporate you-know-what. It's your patriotic right.
