MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

I recorded this episode in three segments on Election Day 2017.

The first at lunch, the second at dinner, and the third after the polls closed.

My perspective on some things changed over the course of the day's events.

The New York City mayoral election is this week and nobody is giving Republican candidate Nicole Malliatokis a chance of victory.

Then again, this election is not all about getting elected. It's part of a larger, more intricate process involving the workings of the political system in New York City and State.

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.

This week, I dwell more specifically on parking violations and the way things used to be.

This week I bought my first new car in 30 years.

I've got a whole history of vehicles, and for the first time in several years, I'm going to recount them.

When I was in college, I worked in a movie theater.

I've talked about the experience before, but not the racism overtone that pervaded the place.

There was also sexism and age discrimination.

But it's the racism I want to tackle this time out.
