Briefly, Roger Angell on voting

Perhaps, lost among all the post-election analysis is Roger Angell’s beautiful post, Rite, over at about his experience at the ballot box, which concludes:

A cloud of smugness enfolds me as I hit the street, exactly the kind of feeling that’s pretty well kept me out of churches. But why resist? I believe in this. It’s been said but I’ll say it: for a nanosecond I am important; infinitesimally I have done good. Feels great.
