Turnout high, but not high enough

I'll have more to say about this in an upcoming column, but for now: Voter turnout in this year's midterm election was high, but not high enough.

The fact that 48.9 percent went to the polls shows that a majority of eligible Kentucky voters once again did not cast a ballot.

Do those of you who didn't vote remember how free and proud those Iraqis appeared that held up their ink-stained fingers after the despot was brought down?

Some of those Iraqis went to the polls under threat of death. What's your excuse?
