HEY! You're part of it!

I am wired on coffee (a mocha from Alliance Bakery). Z and I got up early and got to our polling place a block from our house at 6:30am. Between waiting in line to voting it took an hour. Then we went to Alliance and got to work early (8:30). A lot of Chicago businesses are closing at 3pm to clear the city for all of those people who are going to come into the city for the rally. I had an opportunity to go with Jenny, but I turned it down for a number of reasons. Originally I was really psyched to go, but I will be just as happy to watch it on tv at Eliza's methinks. I love my city. Love love love it. I made a new RWT card yesterday. I came up with the idea for the text inside first but then needed to come up with a good idea for the drawing. Originally I was going to draw a Chicago landmark with a flag on it, but then I went with Sears Tower with tiny little "snowflakes" that are actually the stars from the Chicago flag...is that what it looks like to you?!?!?

The chorus of this song is in my head this morning because I AM A PART OF IT. YOU ARE A PART OF IT. VOTE VOTE VOTE! Tonight we will know who our next president is. Hope upon hope it will be Obama.

American Hearts (Piebald)

Hey! you're part of it!
Yeah! you're part of it!
Hey! you're part of it!
Yeah! you're part of it!

I walk the streets of a Carolina.
Watching people pushing shopping carts.
And there's a guy above me and he's washing windows.
Making ten bucks a pop, and he says to me:

Hey! you're part of it!
Yeah! you're part of it!
Hey! you're part of it!
Yeah! you're part of it!

And I say: sir,
Well have you heard that this country is unequal still.
History continues itself, continues itself.
History continues itself.
And I did not create the rules.

From all I've heard.
And all I've seen.
This place has broken my American heart.
From all I've heard.
And all I've seen.
This place has broken my American heart.

Hey! you're part of it!
Yeah! you're part of it!
Hey! you're part of it!
Yeah! you're part of it!
