After dim sum this last sunday, Jimmy and Pat exercised their franchise. I hung around the parking lot while they made their way through the line. It was cold and rainy and it didn't matter. People came as couples, in small groups, and one at a time. The line never seemed to get shorter. Whenever the lines slacked off, an entire church congregation would show up. You could feel the joy in the air. I even spotted a couple of Mccain supporters hiding their shirts. Man, for a second or two, I thought about how much fun it would be to point them out. But then, as always, I rememberd that Pat's not licensed to practice in Ohio.
