Curse of the Bambino

Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville first published in 1835 has an edition translated by Henry Reeve with an Introduction by Joseph Epstein. The first sentence of the Introduction states "the older one gets, the more it becomes clear that it is a great mistake not to have been brillant when very young."

Voting has begun. The stories of misprinted ballots, provisional ballot lawsuits and computer breakdowns has begun.
