In case I wasn’t clear about voting

If you didn’t get my point the other day — the one about doing whatever is necessary to make sure your vote gets counted in November — here’s how Tom Friedman put it in today’s New York Times (“Will 2020’s Election Be the End of Our Democracy?”)

The threat is real.

So, personally, I will walk, I will jog, I will skip, I will crawl, I will slither, I will bike, I will hike, I will hitchhike, I will drive, I will ride, I will run, I will fly, I will roll, I will be rolled, I will be carried, I will trek, I will train, I will trot, I will truck, I will strut, I will float, I will boat, I will ramble, I will amble, I will march, I will bus, I will taxi, I will Uber, Lyft, scooter, skateboard or motorcycle — and I will wear a face mask, a face shield, gloves, goggles, a hazmat suit, a spacesuit or a wet suit — but I damn well will get to my neighborhood polling station to see that my vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is cast and counted on Nov. 3.

He sounds pretty determined, doesn’t he?

We should all feel that way.
