I don't think we should punish citizens for not voting; I think we should just count the abstentions. That way, politicians would have to campaign positively.

You can afford to count abstentions if you use proportional-representation districts, like this.

Near the end of today's extraordinary interview with Mr. Bolden (seriously, I was rivited to my phone), he gave out an email address for an autographed copy of his book The Echo From Dealy Plaza. It passed so quickly I couldn't write it down (the subway'll do that; i already looked like a weirdo gasping at what he was saying). I tried accessing his website, but it sets up an email to "author"@website etc. The email Mr. Bolden mentioned was something like "a.bolden" something @ something.

It truly was an honor to hear Mr. Bolden tell his incredible experiences. To have such a brave and important person in autograph a copy of those experiences would mean a lot to me. Thanks for your help.

I had to go back through the video to find it, but we've gotten several calls asking. His email is a.bolden@sbcglobal.net
