WT: About a third of eligible youth voted in the 2000 election. Why do you think that is? People are lazy, ignorant, alienated from the process?
David Cross: Yes, I think it's all three of those things. You become ignorant because you're alienated and you don't think out the information and you allow yourself to purposefully get lazy so things don't bother you, so you use that as an excuse not to vote. It's pretty galling that I know people will wait in line for a weekend to see a f*ckin' movie that's gonna be there for three months, but won't wait in line for 12 minutes to vote. If not for yourself, then for everyone else, it's truly one of the most selfish things you can do. Just the fact that you won't educate yourself on the issues. It's truly one of the most selfish things you can do. Especially because so many people have suffered to obtain that right, or obtain the idea of that right.
I love you, David Cross.
On a note that rhymes, I had a dream last night about a sport that is like football but also like the caber toss (Cross, toss! OMG). Yep, football played with cabers. The cabers were smaller (say about 6ft) and you could hit them (either to keep them up in the air for more yardage, or to bat them to the ground to stop the play) with YOUR BARE HANDS. Well, gloved hands. But I don't fancy hitting logs with my hands too many times even if I am wearing gloves.
