SOS.....receives HONORS for doing the right thing?

They're being honored for getting rid (or, in Brunner's case, for trying to get rid)
of touch-screen votings machines.

Now, if they'll just get rid of op-scans, too, and move on to hand-counted paper
ballots, they should also share a Nobel Prize.

Is this a sign of how dismal our psychological state of being is in America? An elected/appointed official does their job in a contientious fashion...and that's worthy of the Nobel Prize?!
Yes, they're bucking the system but we should expect such behavior as a matter of course...especially when it is happening because of their being directed, encouraged, and supported by the many grassroots voting integrity soldiers that sacrifice far more in the effort to save the democratic process than any paid public official.
The Nobel Prize is for curing cancer, I would just give them a solid hand shake and a job well done.
