Thank you for your interest, David.
My niece is an adult now and not appropriate
for either of us to talk about here. [anonymous ?]
I posted mostly as an example about how I hate to see people slam newbies asking questions.
I share your feeling about that, Osso.
I believe in treating young people with respect.
Too ofen, I see them treated with disdain.
Like, I saw a 12 year old boy with his mother waiting to vote
at a polling place. I told him, truthfully, that if it were up to me, kids coud vote.
In my opinion, only as a citizen, there shoud be an elementary test
to ascertain whether a prospective voter knows the most basic
elements of what the election is about, regardless of the age of the prospective voter.
Acceptance of a voter shoud be based upon his elementary knowledge, not his age.
