one thing
Welcome to 1 thing..., a recurring blog feature that, like the magazine version and the vlog, puts your priorities in order, because we've seen what happens when you're left to your own devices, and frankly, you need us. You need us bad.
If you do only 1 thing today, how about you get off your butt and vote? Seriously, do you think your ancestors fought tooth and nail, hardship and horror to come to this great land so that you could just fritter away your one chance to make yourself heard (unless you have a blog)? That's a rhetorical question, but I'm going to answer it: I don't think they did. I really don't. I really don't think they would appreciate the way you're not voting, the way you're not taking part in local politics. We over here are very political. We speak out of both sides of our mouth and take pains to make sure we never let our true feelings be known. We make everyone think we're their friend. We listen and we hold you in our gaze as if we are really taking in what you're saying, but really we're thinking about sports scores, nail polish and what's for dinner. That's what being political is about, people. So therefore we encourage you to vote today, unless you happen to be uninformed or hold opinions that differ from ours. Then you can just sit there.
