Happy Election Day!

In honor of election day, there will be no blog post today.

The following two quotes pretty much summarize my views on this American institution.

The first is from Sydney J. Harris:
"Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be."
The second quote is commonly (but erroneously) attributed to Benjamin Franklin:
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch."
