Working the polls was fun. There were only about 100 people who went into the polling place while I was there from 7:45am to 11am. 90% of them were retired folk- some had to be helped into the polling place! It turns out that in the 3 main races the incumbents were dethroned by newcomers. I was annoyed to see Marion Barry win the election in Ward 8. I don’t understand how people can elect someone who was filmed smoking crack. Nonetheless, I find it harrowing that of the 550,000 residents of DC, only about 10% came out to vote. In a town where local party politics is dominated by one party, the primaries are more important than the actual election day. A real democracy cannot survive when only 10% of the populace takes part in the election. Granted November 2nd will be probably have a significantly higher turnout, but the local races will already have been decided!

The renderings are of the Ganges River Delta in India. One is of the satellite image by itself, and the other is a four paneled reflection of the same satellite image. I find it interesting how the randomized torus graphic is more complex in the reflection rendering, but I personally think the other torus looks better
