"How To Vote"
A few years ago, LAist editor Tony Pierce wrote a blog post titled "How To Vote" on his busblog. David Markland of Metroblogging LA liked it so much, he asked Tony if he could make a short film of it. You may have seen this before, but who cares, watch it again. It's worth it, damnit.
