Democracy and Capitalism
I got back to Knoxville yesterday after some delays in the Detroit airport due to weather. And once I got back Jeremy and I realized it was election day so we voted in the primary and then rewarded ourselves with Icees from the gas station. Gotta love the Icees. While I was in Detroit I was spoiled though - there was a 7/11 on every corner! Ahh, Slurpees.... Anyway, back to the election, Harold Ford Jr. won the Democratic primary for senator, much to no one's surprise. The people running against him weren't even really running. I think one guy was also on the ballot for one or two other offices. Ford will be against Bob Corker in November. From what I've heard about him, he's a relatively moderate Republican. It should be an interesting election in the fall - a somewhat moderate Democrat against a somewhat moderate Republican.
