POST-ELECTION BUMMERS

On Saturday, May 6th, cities all over Texas held elections for local city councils, school boards, mayors, and propositions. Those who voted decided some key issues for those who didn’t. As Jon Stewart quipped, “It is perhaps a sign of the strength of our republic that so few people feel the need to participate.
