While I’m not the most opinionated person around – I’m not too keen on getting into debates about politics, religion, and all of that – I do think it’s important to know what’s going on around me.
Along with bringing back some old habits like reading 3 newspapers/day (NYTimes, USA Today, and The Cornell Daily Sun, of course) I’m trying to keep up with the debates and make sure that I know what my options are. I’m not going to try to persuade you to vote one way or another, but I do think you should vote. Especially those of you still in college – this election comes at a time where our futures are pretty much at the mercy of the economy. Go get yourself an absentee ballot, or drive yourself home on Nov. 4th.
I found this in my online travels the other day and I have to say, I’m pretty impressed – not only by the message, but by the fact that whoever produced it (I assume in partnership with Google) was able to make something that isn’t satirical, isn’t pointing fingers or attacking anyone, and isn’t meant to support one campaign or another. It’s just trying to get people to do their part. The Google Maps site they point you to isn’t all that shabby either. Everything you need to know is right there. Way to get the attention of us web-addicted folk.
