falling leaves experiment - 01.nov.03

Noticed lots of nice falling leaves in the back yard this morning. Decided to take a picture of falling leaves. Didn't have much success. Maybe I'll try again.

Well, Tuesday is election day. I am going to be a Yellow Dog Democrat and vote the party ticket. In case you are wondering - According to Just Politics, a Yellow Dog Democrat "is an unswerving Democratic Party loyalist. The term comes from the 1928 elections. During the election, Senator Tom Heflin of Alabama refused to support fellow Democrat Al Smith. Instead, Heflin chose to support Republican Herbert Hoover, who would go onto become President."

"Many Alabamians disagreed with Heflin's choice and in retaliation popularized the line 'I'd vote for a yellow dog if he ran on the Democratic ticket!' "
