On a lighter note…

Some situations are so challenging that you simply have to make light of it. In Memphis, where politics has had a somewhat different twist going back to the days of Boss Crump, John Harvey has taken the inititative to empower ordinary people to help fix the problems.

www.votinginMemphis.com has an assortment of information and actual tools — like a link to the Social Security Death Index, so that an army of regular citizens can help search the database for dead people still registered.

And, for your listening pleasure, a new take on an old tune.

BTW, Anderson County will be using brand-new voting machines (as a result of the Help America Vote Act) for the August election, and early word from one of the election workers is that you might want to take the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the machines before time to cast your ballot for real. The Election Commission will have the machines on display at this weekend’s Secret City Festival, with staff on hand to answer any questions.
