It’s November already.  That means that politicians the country over are out there trying to curry favor and collect votes.  Okay, so there aren’t any big time national type elections this year, but the local politicians are still looking for voters.  


We are geeks! We have a voice! We vote!


And when that’s done we go back to doing what we do best – living in another world.  Just in case you need inspiration, we offer these possibilities:
