Georgia’s awful voting machines: A history

In which both Democrats and Republicans can share blame:

Jennifer Cohn on Twitter: “5. Georgia entered into its contract with Diebold back in 2002. Guess who was Secretary of State Cox’s Elections Director? None other than Kathy Rogers, who is now a Sr. VP of ES&S, the vendor from whom GA plans to buy BMDs “for all” !… https://t.co/ONQoFsvJF9″

Did I miss anything?

Did I Miss Anything?, by Tom Wayman – Poem 013 | Poetry 180: A Poem a Day for American High Schools, Hosted by Billy Collins, U.S. Poet Laureate, 2001-2003 (Poetry and Literature, Library of Congress)

Did I Miss Anything?

Nothing. When we realized you weren’t here
we sat with our hands folded on our desks
in silence, for the full two hours

Everything. I gave an exam worth
40 percent of the grade for this term
and assigned some reading due today
on which I’m about to hand out a quiz
worth 50 percent

Nothing. None of the content of this course
has value or meaning
Take as many days off as you like:
any activities we undertake as a class
I assure you will not matter either to you or me
and are without purpose

Everything. A few minutes after we began last time
a shaft of light suddenly descended and an angel
or other heavenly being appeared
and revealed to us what each woman or man must do
to attain divine wisdom in this life and
the hereafter
This is the last time the class will meet
before we disperse to bring the good news to all people on earth.

Nothing. When you are not present
how could something significant occur?

Everything. Contained in this classroom
is a microcosm of human experience
assembled for you to query and examine and ponder
This is not the only place such an opportunity has been gathered

but it was one place

And you weren’t here
