This year's ballot for Vallejo City Council features one "Pippin Dew." I know nothing about this person's political affiliation or stands on the issues; for all I know he (she?) is a card-carrying member of the Kitten Electrocution Brigade. Nevertheless, I feel I must vote for him (her?) because, well, you know, "Pippin Dew"! How can I resist the opportunity to vote for that name? Indeed, when given the choice, I will always vote for the stupid name. You can imagine how conflicted I was over last year's race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Indeed, my one and only regret is that I was not alive in 1956 to cast a vote for the Adlai Stevenson-Estes Kefauver ticket!
Seriously, my ONLY regret!
