There is still time ... a little more than 3 1/2 hours to be exact.

So get out there. What are you waiting for?

Visit thesnaponline.com tonight for updates on the election and see Thursday's SNAP for more results and comments.

Let us know what you think of the outcomes as well.

Mother's Day Gifts?

Mother's Day is just around the corner.

And like many sons, I have yet to officially pick out the perfect Mother's Day gift.

What can you possibly give to the woman who gave you life? I mean, she already has the best gift of all — me.

But she could use something.

I don't have the budget to buy her a house or a new car like Elvis would buy his momma.

So, I'm throwing it out there to the blogosphere.

Any suggestions? What should I get mom?

I may use some of your suggestions in an upcoming column and, better yet, I may even get it for mom.
