Cigs & Voters

Ypsilanti, Mich - When City Councilman Geoffrey Rose turned over a voter list to a college freshman to help get out the vote, it didn't occur to him to ask the kid whom he was getting out the vote for. It turns out, the 18-year-old Eastern Michigan University student was looking out for No. 1. Instead of encouraging voters to cast their ballots for Rose, Frank Houston went door to door urging people to write in his name. And he won. Rose, who thought he was running unopposed in Monday's primary said "Frank is 18 years old, and he's all ready acting like what most people in the country can't stand in elected officials." Houston, who's thinking about majoring in political science, said he didn't lie to Rose. "All I ever said was that I was going to get people to vote." he told reporters. ( Random note, not sure of the date on this and feeling too lazy to google, but it amused me. :) )

And Camels, the Doctor recommended cigarette.
