Am I the only Pittsburgher who doesn’t give a flying fart about the Pens?
Come to think of it, I’m not sure I care much for any team, or any sport for that matter. With each passing year I find it harder to get excited about watching people get paid too much to play games. I’d rather participate a sport myself (like ultimate) or watch amateur and unpopular, low-paying professional sports (like track and cross-country). The only popular professional sport I care much about any more is football, and even that’s losing my interest. Maybe I need to start watching soccer.
Anyone else feel like I do? Bueller?
On April 12, I participated in the Run for Their Health 5K in Schenley Park. Formerly called the Run With HAART, this race is hosted by Pitt medical school students and benefits Kenyan children with HIV/AIDS.
Everyone gets to vote for the candidate that they want in a primary, but the delegates you elect are the ones who get to actually vote for a presidential candidate in the national conventions. They also get to vote on their parties’ platforms, so even if their candidate isn’t nominated for president, a delegation can still influence the party. On the state and local level, Ron Paul Republicans have made a significant impact already.
In Pennsylvania, you directly elect the delegates you want, so you need to know where they stand. Go here to find out your congressional district and see which delegates are for Paul, and vote for them on April 22. You can also print out sample ballots for each district to bring with to the polling station or to hand out to other people.
