McClatchy now doing HR work for DHHS?

Voting is HARD. (sigh)

McClatchy Rob is just beside himself.  According to his headline today, college students are going to have to work harder.  (To vote, that is.)  *Apparently, working harder is a bad thing, these days.* I realize that Rob is about a decade or two older than…
