So, um, speaking of grievous responsibilities, in my quest to be a good citizen, I am going to attend my precinct caucuses for the first time ever this year. I grew up in Wisconsin, which holds primaries, which are much easier to participate in.
Caucuses are a direct form of democracy: you gotta show up at a meeting. Groan. I love the idea of democracy but I don't like meetings. Democracy is definitely work. It's about time I start doing it.
