Ninety minutes ago, walking into my regional library and early voting location to pick up a copy of an Olivier bio, a well-chosen Cuban mulatto no older than 21 or 22 wearing a Vance Aloupis shirt asked if I’d voted.
“I hope you voted Republican.”
“Sure didn’t,” I said.
“I thought you wanted bipartisan solutions. To make this country great.”
“I don’t. I want to be as partisan as possible.”
His mouth fell open and he walked away. Clearly this wasn’t in the scripted responses he expected.
Life is made of small victories.
