A thought that strikes me well is that the computers we buy today are
really only intended for a 2 year life span. Why not buy new computers
for schools and first use them for elections for a few days? I see a
zero cost to the states that do this and better yet, our kids get to use
reliable machines that are not obsolete and failing (read: costing big
$$$ to the local school boards for maintenance).
