TNB Night Owl — We Interrupt Your Usual Snark for a Public Service Announcement

This is Friday, which is jobs report day, which means my usual post is shorter to accommodate Tiff starting her Biden Bits post earlier. Also, this is going to be short because it’s 11PM Thursday night, and I just got home from working at the polls.

Short version: volunteer to be an election worker. It’s a lot of fun and you’re giving back to your community. Plus you get an inside view of how elections are run, which will help you debunk the silly conspiracy theories out there. Several voters thanked us for being there for them, and that felt really good! And, I’m a minor (extremely minor!) celebrity now. One of the voters who came to my station said, “Oh, I recognize you from TV!” (We had a local TV news crew show up at the polls. I thought I wasn’t in the shot, but apparently that wasn’t the case!) LOL.

We had very heavy turnout for our small precinct. (50% higher turnout than usual!) I don’t know if this will hold throughout the county, or if it’s just our precinct, but it was heartening to see that! Also, we all guessed how many voters we’d get, and I won! LOL

Anyway, volunteer to be an election worker if you can. That’s all I have for now. This is an open thread, so talk about whatever you like in the comments below. And remember, this Sunday’s noir film is “”Dangerous Crossing,” which you can watch for free on YouTube. Just search “Dangerous Crossing full movie,” and you should find links.
