From WBZ Boston, January 19, 2010.
“Voter Turnout May Be High For Brown-Coakley Race”
“Voter turnout is expected to be high Tuesday for the special election to fill the state’s vacant U.S. Senate seat.
A win by Republican Scott Brown over one-time front-runner Martha Coakley would eliminate Democrats’ 60-seat supermajority in the Senate and likely kill President Obama’s overhaul of health care.
The last time Massachusetts elected a Republican to the U.S. Senate was 1972.
Democrats outnumber Republicans in the Commonwealth, 3-1.
If Coakley wins, she would be the first woman elected to the Senate from Massachusetts.”
“TURNOUT EXPECTED TO BE HIGH
Massachsuetts Secretary of State William Galvin told WBZ he expects about 40-percent of voters to turn out for the special election.
Galvin said about 800,000 came out for the primaries and he believes that should double to 1.6 million based on the intense interest in this campaign.
Weather could be a factor.”
WBZ TV Boston is asking those voting to provide feedback.
“Help be our eyes and ears at the polls. We’re not asking who you voted for… but we ARE interested in:
What was it like at your polling place? Were there lines, or not a soul in sight? How about campaign supporters? Lots of people with signs (for which candidates), or none at all? What was the buzz of voters? Turned off by negative ads and robocalls?”

“Duty is the most sublime word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less.”…Robert E. Lee
I slept, and dreamed that life was Beauty;
I woke, and found that life was Duty.
Was thy dream then a shadowy lie?
Toil on, sad heart, courageously,
And thou shalt find thy dream to be
A noonday light and truth to thee…Ellen Stugis Hooper
I was discussing politics, the internet and news reporting during the past several years with an older friend of mine yesterday. The word and concept of duty came up and I was instantly reminded of one of my favorte quotes spoken by Kathryn Hepburn in the movie “Rooster Cogburn”, one of my favorite movies.
Scott Brown is running for US Senator from MA. Scott Brown is a fine example of living a life of duty.
From the Scott Brown for US Senate website.
“Senator Brown is a proud member of the Massachusetts National Guard, where he has served for nearly three decades and currently holds the rank of Lt. Colonel in the Judge Advocate Generals (JAG) Corps. Brown was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service in homeland security following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. His career in public service began as selectman in Wrentham. He then went on to serve three terms as a State Representative and won his current State Senate seat in a special election in 2004. He is currently in his third Senate term.
In 2004, Senator Brown received the Public Servant of the Year Award from the United Chamber of Commerce for his leadership in reforming the state’s sex offender laws and protecting the rights of victims. He has also been recognized by the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) for his work in creating an environment that encourages job growth and expansion in Massachusetts.”
We all have important duties to fulfill. Certainly, voting is one of them. We must do more than simply voting ourselves. We must stay involved, stay informed and encourage others to do the same. We must help elect Scott Brown for the good of the country and the good of the citizens of MA.
Six degrees of separation
“Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. ”
Contact everyone you know, ask them to do the same and contact people in MA. Urge them to vote for Scott Brown. Let them know we are beside them.
