The Answer

Today is my forty-second birthday, which I feel should bring me one step closer to understanding what life, the Universe, and everything is all about. If I get any blinding insights, I'll be sure to share them. As always with my birthdays, the truly important things to note are that I share the date with Justine Bateman, and that I'm exactly one day older than Cindy Crawford. I mean hey, with references like those, how can I lose?

Today is also the first day of early voting in Texas for the March 4 primary. Those of you in Harris County, you can find early voting information and locations here (PDF). I highly recommend voting early this year, as turnout projections are incredibly high, and I wouldn't want to get caught in the chaos that's sure to occur on the fourth. Of course, that means you have to figure out who you're voting for once and for all. I'll post an incomplete list of people for whom I'll be pushing the button tomorrow, for what that will be worth to you. Some choices are easier than others, but they're all important. Please make sure your voice is heard.

Here's a sorted list of the candidate interviews and Q&As I've done for the Democratic primary. I hope this helps you make your decisions. Thanks very much, and go vote!

It's possible I'll get some more responses - I did send out more Q&As than this - and if so I'll print them when I get them.

Happy birthday, Chuck. At this point, it's nice to know at least a handful of people older than me.

Happy BD, Chuck! I've been working on the ATTUQOLTUAE for about 4 months now, and so far, it seems to involve warm sweaters. You might start there.

Happy Birthday, Charles. I'm 5 weeks behind you.

I know you haven't had much response from Republican candidates, but I seem to recall Mr. Barcisse providing a note. Any chance to get those posted?

42, but you knew that. The answer, of course, lies in the question.

Happy Birthday anyway.
