Election 08

I don't really have time to write (lots of biostats studying to do)..but I am so excited about the election. They are saying that 14 million more people voted in this election than in the last! While I'm obviously thrilled with the outcome, I'm also really excited that so many people actually took the time to vote. I was really lucky and did not have to wait at all at the polls, but kudos to everyone who had to stand in really long lines...

There is so much that could be still looks likely that gay marriage will be banned in CA which in my mind is a huge human rights violation. On the other hand, voters in S.Dakota rejected measures that would have been so dangerous and damaging for women. So much to ponder!
