Bernie is FirstAlan, all the necessary write-in candidiate papers were filed in all states in which Bernie isn't already on the ballot.
I remember that story, listener, but I am dubious about it. I will investigate with respect to California. But not right now--I must mine some salt.Alan
I wouldn't mind a Michelle Obama/Zephyr Teachout ticket!

Yeah!!Stewart and Colbert began that well.
Oh my goodness, it looks like I survived the iPhone upgrade from 6.1.3 to 9.3.5...! 😜 I had no intention of updating, but my granddaughter messages me and I could only see about half the emojis she sends. Then today she was under the weather, so I decided it was time. She made me brave. 🦁 How ironic, then, that the last thing that began working with the new update was ... you guessed it ... messaging. But I am restored at last! Be very proud of me. 😎 LOL!
There are quite a few states where a write-in vote for Bernie will not count. Ohio is one. They have a "sore loser law". If you ran in the primaries you cannot file for write-in status. Jill is on the ballot however.
The folks who filed the papers in each state said that in the states in which Bernie is not going to be on the November ballot they had done all the paperwork to allow Bernie to be a write-in candidate. So now I'm confused.
Congratulations, listener! And:From Wikipedia:[Gloria] La Riva has attained ballot access in eight states: Vermont, New Mexico, Iowa, Louisiana, Colorado, Washington, New Jersey, and California. (14)(14) Who is on the presidential ballot where? [Click]—Alan
Dang. Bernie must have made sure his name wasn't on the ballot in any state. He fell on his sword because his first priority is seeing how many of his policies representing our hopes can be made into reality. He is probably right that the shortest distance between two points is Clinton. But I still do not trust that his sacrifice and support will lead to his policies seeing the light of day once she's elected. His people say they will watchdog and hound and make it happen. But doesn't it all seem like some episode of the Twilight Zone, in which people can't see reality and just keep doing what the media tell them to do? I'm sick of politics!
It seem that the local Sacred Harp singing group is at least temporarily discombobulated; the couple who were its de facto leaders moved back East a couple of weeks ago. So for the time being I will teach myself. I found a lesson from the Smithsonian intended for elementary school children. In the early hours of this morning It occurred to me that the pedagogic principles I used to teach Chemistry many years ago are directly applicable. Today I found a web site in Germany that has a huge selection of Sacred Harp pieces (the entire standard book--more than 500 songs), with all four (or five) voices, that can be played separately or combined. I figure I can copy the appropriate audio files to a CD and sing along as I drive--a technique I have previously used for several songs. My voice--if I am not seriously mistaken--falls in the part that carries the melody--so much the better.--Alan
Ooh, neato! Easy as pie (at least on my Mac) to make practice CD's for Sacred Harp songs! For instance, click on I'm Going Home. To the right are progress bars for the various voices; click on one that is underlined, it downloads and immediately opens in iTunes. From there it can be made into a CD audio file and saved to disc. ("Vierstimmig" is all the voices combined.) The voice is computerized, but not unpleasant and plenty close enough. There are also links to YouTube videos. Tenor, the voice that carries the melody, is the third line in the score.--Alan
