So I sort of went to school for a while yesterday and got out to see the city a bit. Above, a downtown shot from the 16th Street Mall. Mies van der Rohe, that blessed and accursed architect, would be pleased. Second, the state capitol building, with a dome covered in gold leaf. Last, drive-through voting outside the city-county office building. There are local elections finishing next Tuesday. One of the staff told us it is totally mail voting but if you want to drive downtown and drop it off they are waiting for you. That's enlightened.
