Great window into a very foreign place. When traveling, most of my contact is with business people,academics and international tourists "On the street" contact really brings the news home. Good job!
This is really facetious and argumentative. Your comments about being under the influence of Scotch make sense. You identify yourself with a photo for nearly everything, everywhere. Travel, banking, purchases of various items...need I go on. What is the downside of identifying yourself to vote with all of the documented fraud taking place in both extreme political camps. Instead of imagining the poor are experiencing discrimination (I say imagining because they, too, need to provide photo ID for almost everything else), just get over it and act like any self respecting American citizen... from either major party. BTW: When you clarified your unusual request, the polling place did comply with your wishes. You obviously went out of your way to NOT provide an ID for the purpose of "stirring the pot". My guess is that you communicated trouble through body language and demeanor because over 90% of our communication is done that way. Truth is, a photo ID is the BEST way to identify even if your mail combined with card is acceptable.
Interesting, but life is truly what you make it. I am surrounded by interesting, successful and intelligent people here. Honored to be associated with the U of A (at the very top of the list of research Universities in the US) and an active part of the community, all I can say is the author sounds like a really unhappy person and my guess is he won't find what he is seeking unless he looks within himself. Not a surprise that he complains about the transient population when he was a transient resident. Go figure.
