And Research Does Not Mean Watching "Letterman"

Bravo to Cultural Offering for stating what needs to be more widely acknowledged:

Not everyone should vote. An excerpt:

The problem I have with feel-good (read self-serving) voter registration drives is that I view voting as a responsibility that I bear. I take that responsibility very seriously and that means that it is my responsibility to register myself, take the time to research the issues and cast my ballot. It is not ACORN's responsibility to register me, it is not any organization's responsibility. It is the reason I don't like motor-voter, same day voting or anything close to these approaches.
