This is a fucking amazing little piece. My favorite part:
I’m more with Rumi, the hardcore, love-drunk Persian mystic, who has a terrific, rather intense bit of poetic instruct about not wasting your true calling in the world, about finding your gift and not squandering it because he says that would be like taking a precious Indian sword and using it merely to slice rotten meat, or nailing it to the wall and hanging rusty pots from it.

It looks like DeCoster Egg Farm put $2,500 dollars into the fight against Same Day Voter Registration. Why yes, the same DeCoster Egg Farm that is notorious for worker rights abuses. Why yes, the same DeCoster notorious for putting America’s food supply at catastrophic risk.
I am flattered to know that such a well-accomplished criminal cares about “preserving the integrity” of the ballot.
Get off your asses and preserve your voting rights. Vote Yes on 1.
