So, say there are 3 candidates running for office. Let's call them R, D, and G. I have to live with the voting system we currently have, so how do I choose who to vote for?

We hit Notre Dame late on Sunday, and the towers were already closed. So we showed up early on Monday morning so that we could check out the top.

I've failed at getting this posted 3 times now. that sucks.

Sunday was still a heritage day, so we checked out the inside and outside of the Palais Luxembourg and also walked around all of the islands, Ile de la Cite and Ile St. Louis. On Ile de la Cite is one of the most famous gothic cathedrals, Notre Dame.

The Pantheon was open for free due to heritage days, so Liz and I went in to check it out. I don't reconize many of the revolutionary names in the tombs, but I did recognize Hugo and Dumas.

So was this supposed to be a foreign poicy debate, or the Iraq policy debate? There were what, 3 questions not about Iraq? And all of them focussed on Iran and North Korea. Don't we have other things to do then fight wars? Can't we talk about free trade? Or Mexican immigration? Pakistan and India? Our Cuban policy?
