Real men (and women) register to vote

The Atlanta Falcons (yup, those Atlanta Falcons) are helping out with a voter registration drive in Marietta, Ga., tomorrow.

Other real men and women are registering voters across the country, especially our brothers and sisters in California. They're busting their butts to register voters so they can defeat the the Billionaires' Bill of Rights, Proposition 32, in November.

But about those Falcons: The AFL-CIO tells us,
If you live in the Marietta, Ga., area and haven’t registered to vote and are a football fan, you have a chance Wednesday to make your voice heard at the ballot box and meet members of the Atlanta Falcons and NFL Players Association (NFLPA). 
The players are pitching in with the Atlanta-North Georgia Labor Council for a voter registration event from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches at 801 Church St., N.E.
