A small sample of dinner conversation with Sarah and Hubby, where, like the dorks we are, we talk about blogs:

Hubby: I bet more people read romance than vote.
Sarah: could be.

Professor- type at next table: Haurrumph!

    Hubby: Was that a comment on ROMANCE? Did I hear you snort at the mention of ROMANCE? Have you ever even read a ROMANCE? Ever stopped to think Jane Austen wrote ROMANCE? Did you know that 42% of ROMANCE READERS have college degrees? Would you want to live in a world without ROMANCE?

    Professor-type: Well played, young man. Judging by your wife’s grin, you will get ROMANCE MOST TORRID tonight.

    I’d bet so.  To read romance, all you need is, um… knowing how to read.  To vote, there are a lot more requirements (no violent crimes; right age; at one point, right gender and race; etc).  I, for one, wish that I could vote, but can’t.  I turn 18 the week of the next presidental election.

    That said, I know that many people who CAN vote do not.  Which annoys me.  So, even keeping voter requirements out of it… yeah, I think that you’re right.

    I think the reason probably is, when you pick up a romance, there’s at least a 30% chance you’re going to be satisfied with the result. When you vote, it’s more like 3%. Even if your guy wins.
