Today in the eyes of the editors:

Early voting and postal voting: The general election will be voted on, culminating in Election Day on November 8. View an example vote here. Early voting is available through November 5, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at four county locations, listed here. You can vote early in any of the four locations, regardless of your district location. To vote by post, you can request your ballot by post here. Due to the new law from the legislature, which limits the ease of voting, drop boxes are available, but only to a limited extent. The ballot box at the election office is checked by an employee from 60 days prior to the election up to and including election day. This dropbox is no longer available after office hours or on weekends, except during the early voting period. Other drop boxes will be available at early voting locations, but only during early voting days and only during voting hours. Ballot papers must be received at the polling station by 7pm on Election Day to be counted. If you return your ballot paper by post, please allow for a delivery time of at least ten days. A postmark does not extend this term. You can follow your vote here. All other questions about the election procedure can be answered on the Election Bureau website.

Written by Liverpool-born British playwright and actor Brandon Thomas, the play premiered in England in 1892, breaking the then-current record for longest-running play worldwide, landing on Broadway in 1893 and later touring internationally. It has since been revived, as well as adapted for movies and musicals. Watch Rick de Yampert’s preview, “City Repertory Theater and Beau Wade Drag ‘Charley’s Aunt’ On the Stage.”

In advanced societies, some jobs and the people who perform them are taken for granted, but in this 2012 remake of the 1977 classic, everyone has a powerful voice capable of shaking the core of our everyday lives. This version of Working features more contemporary pieces, including some written by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, and 26 characters all looking for meaning, hope and truth in their relationship to their profession. Works contains strong language and adult content.

In particular: Praise be to folly: it is Erasmus’s birthday (1467). In revenge, Congress passed the Volstead Act in 1919, launching the ban. It ended under FDR in 1934. It started again under Nixon, with his still ongoing, even less successful, generally more racist and ever deadlier “war on drugs.”

Now this: Since it’s also Dennis Franz’s 78th:

“Just as nothing is more foolish than misguided wisdom, so nothing is more imprudent than perverse prudence. And surely it is perverse not to adapt to the prevailing circumstances, to refuse to ‘do as the Romans do’, to ignore the partygoer’s maxium ‘have a drink or say your goodbyes’, to insist insisting that the play should not be a play. True prudence, on the other hand, recognizes human limitations and does not seek to jump over them; it is willing to walk with the herd, tolerantly overlooking faults, or sharing them in a kind spirit. But, they say, that’s exactly what we mean by foolishness. (I will hardly deny it – as long as they will answer by admitting that this is exactly what it is to step up the game of life.)”

–From Erasmus’ Praise of Folly.
