Sweet summer child

First of all, if you don’t know the song “Summertime” from Porgy & Bess, I encourage you to go listen to Billie Holiday singing it, so you can better understand my vibrant punning.

Done? Great.

Now, consider signing this petition calling for an investigation of what seems to be widespread voter fraud (that is, fraud disenfranchising voters) in Arizona during yesterday’s primary election. It sucks. Basically, not enough polling places, voters were blamed as if it was their fault there weren’t enough polling places because they showed up to vote and maybe if they didn’t want to vote, they wouldn’t have to spend so much time voting. I voted early by mail, but I’ve also heard rumblings that those might not have been counted? And many voters (including Dave and I) just got our updated voter registration cards in the mail yesterday (including new polling places) i.e. the day of the election. Basically it sucks. More here.

In happier news, Lady is doing great at her new stable and I am delighted to have her! I was a little nervous last week as all the pieces were falling into place, but things seem to be going well so far! Yay!
