Human Sadness at the Polls

Overheard at the polls.

"Oh," said the elderly woman in surprise, looking down at the voter list as she checked out before depositing her ballot in the ballot box; "my husband hasn't voted yet!"  Later, the poll worker (who had checked the elderly woman out)  turned to her colleague and said, "That was so sad."  "Why?" asked her colleague, "because her husband hasn't voted yet?"   "No . . . ," answered the poll worker; "so sad . . . because her husband couldn't have voted; he passed away last week."
