Quote of the Day - If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1000 MPG.
Hanging chads, and all that.
Makes sense. Punch doesn't work, vote not counted. I get that.
In response, Riverside County, California, instituted a touchscreen voting system.
Wow. State of the art, right here on the left coast. Admittedly, I'm a computer techie, so I like this idea. Touch the screen, vote gets counted. I get that, too. Seems like it would work very well, especially since it's been tested in other parts of the nation for 15 years.
Ok, so we're not on the cutting edge on this one. Still, it sounds great. But, not to everyone.
Believe it or not, Susan Weber of Riverside doesn't like it. So, she did what every other red-blooded American would do, she filed suit.
Justice Pamela Rymer of the 9th Circuit, though, thinks the Touchscreen voting program doesn't violate Ms. Weber's civil rights. You know, let your fingers do the walking on the Touchscreen.
So, hanging chads are a thing of the past. Now we just have to deal with hangnails.
