Just voted in North Texas

Check straight Democratic Ticket at the voting machine. Reviewed all the picks and they were correct.

The polling location was not crowded, but they told me there has been a steady stream of voters today - more than usual. It took me all of ten minutes to vote. There were three poll workers there, one of them an older white man wearing a blue shirt. Did not ask him if his shirt had meaning, as it is probably an inappropriate question in a polling location.

I was wearing a bright blue shirt. Just another voting day in my little town (population about 12,000).

But with their owner Jerry Jones, horrible coaching, and losing season, even a lot of Texans would not identify themselves as cowboy fan. I now am an Eagle Fan. But still, if cowboys ever play Eagles in a playoff game I would be hard pressed to root for Eagles. I just don't think cowboys will ever be a serious contender as long as they remain Jerry Jone's Tinker Toy. Also, fuck that racist asshole Jones.
