How I Got To Be a Distinguished Person of the Week.

Every week in a Washington Post column, Jennifer Rubin salutes a distinguished person or persons of the week. Yesterday that award went to American voters who, as is permitted in most states, voted early by mail or in person, including many who waited in line for as much as eleven hours.  I voted Thursday by inserting my ballot in a drop box at the county offices, so I’m a distinguished person, though a lot less distinguished than people who waited hours in outrageously long lines.  As Rubin noted, “At a time when democracy is under siege around the world . . . it is immensely encouraging to see Americans flock to the polls.”
