All right. It's time to forget all the cynical thoughts we've had recently about our U.S. Senate campaign. Saturday is the day for us to go to the polls and exercise our right to vote.
Like many other privileges we have, this is one that, all too often, we take for granted. We should not forget that the prosperity and security we now enjoy is a direct result of the democracy that those before us fought to build. I know the endless stream of negative political ads can be the source of a lot of our apathy and cynicism. But, this Saturday, rise above it. Cast your vote as a way of saying thanks to our veterans who helped us earn and keep our right to vote.
