The caucuses are tonight - I will be heading to Minneonka High School. I wonder if cameras are allowed? I suppose this is a mute point considering the capabilites of cell phones in our world.

Would you believe I remember as a little kid singing:
"Whistle while you work.
Stevenson's a jerk.
Eisenhower has the power,
Whistle while you work."

That came out of the deep recesses of my mind when I saw those campaign buttons!
I was too young back then to even know what elections were about!
