Vote, damn it

The magazine added, "Roger Angell is ninety-eight years old, legally blind, and heading to the polls tomorrow."

Consider yourself shamed.  If you're lazy, or the candidates aren't sufficiently perfect, or it's raining when you get up, go anyway.  If there's a line, stare at your phone or even try talking to people.  If you don't know how to mark the ballot or use the machine, ask a poll worker.  If you have a dentist appointment, change it.  If you're still not motivated, think about John Lewis at the Edmund  Pettus Bridge or force-fed suffragettes or whatever the hell it takes.  Go.  Or don't come back here.
