Today’s the last day to early vote. If you haven’t done it already, please get out there and vote. Voting is the simplest way to make your voice heard. Early voting locations in Shelby County can be found here, for the rest of the state go here and select your county of residence.
Looking at my reader, I see there’s a lot I’ve missed this week. I’m not going to even try to cover all of it here, but the whole Basil Marceaux thing is so over the top that I’m doing a giddy dance in my chair. Wow, how did I miss this?
So here’s the deal. I’ve got over 3000 posts to sift through since Wednesday, and I really want to go back to bed. Some of these may be duplications, so be warned. Here are some highlights of the week gone by.
On to the Coffee!

Basil Marceaux, the AP interview.
The Tri-State Defender endorses Steve Cohen in TN-09.

Go back to bed. Seriously, whatever it is you think you need to do is less important than sleeping right about now. I promise, it’ll be ok.
