Free I-Voted-Today Doughnuts. Is There Anything They Can't Do?
As of 11:30 a.m., the Krispy Kreme on Greenville Avenue had given away 343 free doughnuts to folks who said they'd voted. You have your choice of any doughnut, but the most popular today is the sprinkle-topped, star-shaped glazed pictured at right. And children of voters are getting free mini-doughnuts, as well as paper hats and balloons.
Contrary to rumor, however, Chik-Fil-A is not giving away free anything today. Checked with the one on Central at Southwestern, and they'd heard nothing of a "free lunch for voters" initiative. But you could always drive out to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport at 5 p.m. for some free Ben and Jerry's. Democracy in a cone! --Elaine Liner
