Whatever happened for I. R. V. ( Instant Runoff Voting?) It would have saved me much consternation.

For awhile there, I was torn. Should I vote for Richard Neal, fearing that the wanting and waiting Andrea Nuciforo would make it? Or not.

Well " Not" has won, and with a huge surge of relief, I am finally voting and working for someone who shares all my values, someone whom I have admired for years for his guts and his brilliance, a guy who takes no campaign contributions over $99 and has a thorough understanding of, and would be a breath of fresh air into, the melancholy state of American politics at present.

I urge a vote for Bill Shein in the upcoming primary on Sept. 6.
