From Chavez Appears to Survive Referendum, the Washington Post, August 16, 2004:
The opposition also had to outpoll the millions of Chavez supporters who flocked to the polls Sunday, eager to retain a president who has used the country’s soaring oil revenue to provide health, education and food programs for the nation’s poor majority.
William Sutherland, 40, a university student, was among those who rose before dawn and stood in line for hours under a punishing sun to back Chavez.
From Ignorance Is No Longer Bliss, Smartmoney.com, August 11, 2004:
Young voters have stayed away in droves in the past, despite high-profile attempts by the likes of Rock the Vote, founded in 1990, and others to drum up electoral interest. In 2000, just 36.1% of eligible voters ages 18 to 24 even bothered to cast ballots.
One reply on “When William was young, he had to stand in the sun for hours and walk three miles to school to do what you kids do today. Oh, he still does.”
A forty year old student! What a loser! He should be making tons of money in an air-conditioned office like a winner, not standing around in the sun like a broke old stupid loser.
