It follows, then, that I would take pause at the fact that today (November 3rd) is also Election Day and National Sandwich Day in the United States. My first inclination was to question (via Twitter, of course) which would Americans devote more time, thought, and energy to: Election Day or National Sandwich Day? Alas, I fear that it is the latter, rather than the former.
