voting for change
another autumn
in the wind

Posted as a comment at Juliet's blog. Scotland, her home, is voting September 18 on the issue of whether to declare independence from England.

Yesterday was also primary election, in which candidates for November's general election are chosen, in New York and elsewhere. Most incumbents were easily renominated, many of them in areas in which one party enjoys a dominance that makes November's outcome pretty much a foregone conclusion.

A few of the incumbents renominated in New York are currently under indictment.

Thanks, my friends. For me, autumn always brings with it that sense of continuity and change. Yesterday is dead and gone, and autumn always returns.
