No problem, William. You are welcome to "pester" us. We'd just like to see
you refine your rap a bit. You are doing a lot of hand waving without
really looking at specifics.

I'm sure you can come up with more. If you do, I'd like to see you address
issues specific to the OVC system.

No, that doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling. We've seen a deluge of
worthless commentary by election officials that are technologically
illiterate. Glenda Hood, like most election officials, is simply not
qualified to evaluate a computer-based technology. This is a problem, but
not an insurmountable one. They'll eventually get it or be replaced.

Fortunately, they're not all as dim as Glenda Hood. We have a very good one
close by in Yolo County. Freddie Oakley has an engineering background and
this has really helped her to grasp the issues. I recommend the Sacramento
Bee article she wrote not long ago.
