Diebold Variations

Ah a sleepless mind wandering the internet is a dangerous thing. Early this morning I found a delightful site. This guy, Rand Careaga, came into posession of an image of Stalin casting a vote and wondered what he might have made of the new touchscreen voting technology. Careaga says a magazine ad suggested itself. Then another, and another... (He stopped after 2 days)

I've copied what I found to be the best. The rest can be found at:

These ads call to mind that wonderful Al Capone quote, often mis-attributed to former Chicago mayor Richard Daly "Vote early, vote often."

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
