To the Editor:
A little chuckle as we approach Election Day November 5, 2013.
It was 408 years ago that a gentleman who was dissatisfied with the current government of England was working to make a change. He was captured as he guarded gunpowder that had been packed in the undercroft to the House of Lords, part of Parliament in London, preparing to blow up the House of Lords.
The coincidence of date made me chuckle and reminded me that we have the opportunity to change or affirm our government by going to the polls to exercise our privilege to vote.
Perhaps we later celebrate the results with fireworks as in England there will be celebrations of the “Gun Powder Plot /Guy Fawkes Night” with fireworks.
