"You're making dots, not holes!"

Change comes slowly, except when it comes all at once. Either way, it's not usually something we embrace with open arms (yeah, even "good" change).

We're now on the ink-dot system here in K-town Adjacent. Lots and lots of replacement ballots this year. Seems some of us were trying to punch holes in the ballots with the ink daubers. Actually, given the frequency with which Grand Poobah Poll Worker was barking out the "dot-don't-punch" order, lots of us were.

But see, the dauber doohickey looked like the old punch thingy. And the ballots slide in the same way. And and and...

I made dots. But I did make them extra-firmly, just in case.

Change comes slowly, especially when it comes all at once. For me, anyway.
