74. This is Personal- on many levels
Mrs. Edwards,

My hopes and thoughts for a complete, "forever" recovery.

I've had family experience with breast cancer and this cancer, like all cancers, is an affliction upon people that must be eliminated.

I hope that you and John can influence congress not only to pass legislation that requires a paper ballot but also robust, mandatory, manual auditing of elections. Other e-voting schemes and cryptography are only new recipes for disaster. No one considers the fact that new forms of technology also invite new and more egregious forms of fraud. The game of "beating and playing the system" is alway ahead of protecting the system.

It is time Congress quit listening to corporate and corporate-influenced election officials about voting. It is also time to invite more than computer scientists to testify. They are the mechanics who build the spec'd system. The system designers need to come from the voting activist community and accounting. Without that input, the status quo is likely to be maintained.

May you receive the best available treatment along with our hopes and prayers.
