Subject: Video documentation of unusable/inaccessible absentee ballot

Several organizations are urging voters in the current US election to 
videotape and/or photograph their voting experiences.  Spork voted today 
using an absentee ballot, and discovered that the ballot was unsuitable 
for the disabled voters who depend on it most.  She has posted 
photographs, a lumiere video, and a lengthy video with sound (as a link, 
microblog does not have huge automatic downloads) showing how hard it 
was to submit her absentee ballot.  There are also links to relevant 
articles and organizations.

Last month's microblog is in memory of Louise Salls Deed, Martha's 
mother, who died on October 23, 2008, after a brief illness.  Both 
Sporks attended the memorial service and read eulogies.  (Texts to be 
posted soon.)

There are also further medical and technological misadventures as usual, 
and some book references.

There is a lot of talking about nologo and the responsibility of 
multinational corporations in the world. Starbucks is doing something 
positiv. It does not endorse Obama, but the US populace with a very big 
ad on the frontpage of www.washingtonpost.com and some viral video here:

The ad has a realy great animated gif, much better than the video, chapeau!

When Obama is declared the winner of this election tuesday night
go out to your street and dance.

Forward to all you know.
