I've Cast My Ballot

Rene Belloq: "Indiana, we are merely passing through history. But this...this is history."

As I completed my ballot today (GA allows early voting), this quote from Raiders of the Lost Ark hit me square in the jaw. Odd that something said by a fictional Frenchman should ring so true in my head. It could have been delirium setting in after waiting in line for 3 1/2 hours. It could be that I'm a total Indiana Jones fanboy. Or it could be that the choice made this year is one of the most important I've ever faced. This is the sixth time I've had the honor of voting for the President, but this time It really felt like I was part of something grand. It really felt good. I felt proud.

Go vote! It's worth the wait!
