KIM (counselor): Poetry Crisis Line, what is your emergency?
MAHOGANY L. BROWNE (caller): I always took it for granted
BROWNE: The right to vote.
KIM: I did too until recently. Use it well.
Excerpted from “The 19th Amendment & My Mama” by Mahogany L. Browne
Yeah, we may be kind of political for the next couple of weeks.
CHRIS WALLACE: You will meet two men. One always lies. One sort of tells the truth. I can’t tell you which is which because I work for Fox.
KRISTEN WELKER: [to Wallace] I got this. [to candidates]: Who would your opponent tell me to vote for?
BOTH CANDIDATES: Donald Trump.
WALLACE: I told you they were inscrutable.
WELKER: [serious side-eye]
TRUMP [internal monologue]: Nailed it!
If people tell you the dead are voting, they’re probably trying to keep the living from doing the same. Don’t let them. Find your polling place here or here, and vote tomorrow (Tuesday, November 5).
