New Year’s Eve link roundup

I’ve been collecting these links for a few days now and have finally gotten around to rescuing them from my email. Does not voting really mean a vote for Obama? Or a vote for the Republican candidate (whoever that may be)? I know for local elections, voters can write in a name on the ballot (at least on the absentee ballots, which I always use)-but is that possible for a federal election?

In other news, work on the 2012 Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes calendar continues; there was an unexpected health issue with my mother this week and so I’ve been focused on that for the past couple of days, with major surgery taking place in the next week or so for her. I know you’re all chomping at the bit for the calendar and all I can say is please be patient. Once we get through this next week, I hope to get the calendar wrapped up and posted.
