Just stop by to say good-bye

I'd detail my reasons, but that would score an alert or block.

We have o/a 500 registered voters in this Blink and You'll Miss Itville. We had to wait in line about 15 minutes to do the deed. That's the longest we've ever waited. IOW what passes for a mob scene here. People are jazzed.

Now the wait begins.

Any other Graniteheads out there, let's hear from you.

Lots of memories and none of them good ones.

Stupid duck and cover exercises,
watching the A-Bomb tests on the News of the Day shorts at the movies,
listening to the Sputnik beeps and knowing the USSR had ICBM capability,
during the Cuban Missile go around, first shirt telling us our base was a primary target and we were sitting tight,
listening to the Looking Glass take off at midnight
watching Buffs with H-bombs in their bellies take off
Disaster Control exercises "How long can we wear these suits before we start to dehyderate?" "About an hour."
Sitting 50 miles from a Warsaw Pact border, knowing if shit happened we'd be rolled like a cheap rug.
Listening to Raygun joke about first strike
And much, much more

"The living will envy the dead" and "Our lives are depended upon Soviet computer technology."
