happy election day
Hopefully by this evening two things will be settled: 1. Obama will be the next President of the United States and 2. I'll stop receiving annoying political messages from virtual strangers via Facebook. But there is one less obvious quandary left dangling down south. I saw an interesting article this morning about a clearly overlooked group of the voting population: the nudists. Apparently folks at the Caliente Resort and Spa in Florida would like to vote naked. For being naked and all, this group seems a little high-maintenance. They have requested their own polling station be erected (pun intended) at their resort so that they may get their vote on in the buff. The have also scoffed at the suggestion that they vote absentee. "It's about freedom," a member insisted. "We take our civic duty seriously and nudism is a very serious part of our lifestyle." So, two questions remain today: who will win the election and what ever happened with Florida's nude vote. Stay tuned.
