In search of the disgusted non-voter

I spent my afternoon walking around Twin Peaks – in the rain. This sounds like it would be less than fun, but it was, for a variety of reasons. For one thing, San Francisco in the rain up in the hills has a particular kind of haunting and quiet vertical beauty that I find really appealing.
But there was also the hunt. I was after a very certain subspecies of voter – those who were so disgusted with this special election that they couldn’t bring themselves to dignify it by showing up on Tuesday. As it turns out, these folks had almost thought this strategy all the way through, and they just needed to be asked to vote. Beyond distributing a bunch of lit, I bagged a couple of these this afternoon. Beyond having the perfect excuse to wander around one of the city’s most beautiful and diverse neighborhoods, this made it worth it.
We’ve had some particularly aimless trolls come by here. Differing opinions are more than welcome, but a lack of politeness just isn’t. We’ve cleaned up after them and posted a new comments policy. Not sure if that will help, but it’s worth a try.
