I can't vote -- my citizenship application is in process. Next time, hopefully, if they don't escalate their paranoia about foreigners and kick me out of the country before then. This is the first time in my life when I've actually felt unsafe, as a minority, in America. :-(

So, hey, if you're feeling lazy and not wanting to stand in line all day and perhaps thinking of skipping the whole vote thing -- if it'll motivate you at all to think you're voting in my place, then please, go for it. I'd appreciate it. And I'd be voting for Kerry, just in case you had any doubts.

This afternoon, I plan to be at the Indo-American center, helping to motivate South Asian voters to get out there and make their voices heard. A lot of us tend to be upper-middle-class and complacent, unfortunately. This evening, I plan to be watching Jon Stewart and biting my nails.
