While you were all suffering through the bs that is the American electoral scene during the primaries, I causually followed the commentary on the BBC World Service radio and thanked my good sence to leave America for awhile. But now the tables have turned and I am now in the midst of a local election for Assemblyman, My counterpart, Samuel, is runnig and I think his chances are pretty good. He's up agaist 2 others; one, the toughest competetion, is also a high school graduate and long standing member of the ECG church, and the other "is dangerous", according to the man that I sat next to during a rally. I guess he has chopped money in the past that was supposed to be used to renavate the school. The election is today. Go Samuel!
