Why Tuesday?

Behind the scenes at Curb Your Enthusiasm *

* Update: It was the episode! Here’s a short review of Boxer’s performance, and an article about the show. I thought she was pretty funny.

I’m pretty sure that tomorrow night U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer appears on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm in a cameo role. I’m not positive, but I’m fairly certain after seeing the teaser for the episode, called The Anonymous Donor, just now on HBO. Last October, after driving across the country talking with our elected officials about Tuesday voting, I went behind the scenes at the episode’s filming to talk with the Senator about election reform. Check out the video below, and watch Senator Boxer tomorrow night on HBO.

Interestingly, according to the New York Times, Larry David is no stranger to the cause of election reform. To see why, click below.

[Robert F. Kennedy Jr.] spent Christmas skiing in Sun Valley, Idaho, at the home of Ms. David and her husband, Larry David, the ”Seinfeld” creator and ”Curb Your Enthusiasm” protagonist. Mr. David urged him to read a book on the 2004 election by the news media critic Mark Crispin Miller.

That books is called Fooled Again: The Real Case for Electoral Reform. It’s controversial, but worth a read, and Miller addresses the controversy in the latest edition.

I had no idea voting on Tuesday was a thing. I just never took notice of the day of the week. Thanks for sharing!
