Musical instructions

Oh boy, three posts, three days in a row – how long’s it been since I did that? Maybe since senior year in high school. Here’s something I haven’t offered for awhile: a quote of the day. A California election supervisor, explaining the problem with her county’s voting machines:

Vietnamese is a great language, very beautiful and musical … But we are not persuaded that we have a ton of Vietnamese-speaking blind voters.

Apparently the machines wouldn’t provide audio instructions for the blind in English. Voters this year might want to take a pocket dictionary to the polls.
