A person would have to be a troglodyte to not know that we are having a recall election here in California.
It is an amazing experience. It is certainly visibly less organized than the typical election, but there is order - the situation has not disintegrated into chaos.
For once we are seeing a wide variety of candidates; for once we have a real menu to select from.
I think that more elections should be like this one.
California is having a very healthy fling with democracy.
This is in stark contrast to our favorite "public benefit" entity, ICANN, an entity that tossed elections overboard at at the first opportunity.
How am I going to vote?
AGAINST: the recall. Touchstone [from Shakespeare's As
You Like It]: described my rationale nicely:
"a poor virgin, sir, an ill-favoured thing, sir, but mine own".
FOR: Arianna Huffington
