"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Is it over yet?

Nah, but it is kinda beautiful in its own way....

As I was saying:

Multiple Texas counties reported record-breaking turnout figures on the first day of early voting Monday, according to news outlets across the Lone Star State.

Some counties saw as much as double the number of votes cast Monday than they did on the first day of early voting in the last presidential race in 2012. Many also saw significant increases from the first day of early voting in 2008.

Read about it here.  There was increased turnout all across Texas.  Yes, it's possible all these people are enthusiastic Trump supporters.  But the polls say that's just not likely.

Crowds, too, and lines, which yes, should not happen in this land of the free and home of the user-rich.  We have the technology and the money, but this isn't how we spend it.  Still, standing in line to vote is determination.

This could be very interesting.
