I spent a 20-hour day volunteering as an election worker in the New York primary on September 12.

I decided at some point in the morning to grab a piece of paper and record several sections with my thoughts on the experience, and to document things that happened at the polls.

I talked about getting a parking violation and getting towed a few weeks ago.

The MTA has unleashed its "Summer of Hell" for commuters, specifically those who take the LIRR.
