CHAD is sometimes suggested as a humorous acronym for
"Card Hole Aggregate Debris". The origin of the term chad is
uncertain. Patent documents from the 1930s and 1940s show
the word chad, often in reference to telegraphy tape. The plural
chads is attested from about 1940. Chad is likely derived from
the Scottish name for river gravel, chad or the British slang for
louse or chat. An old joke says that Saint Chad is the patron saint
of disputed elections! So, there you have it my bloggy friends.
Let's hope and pray this election is not a disputed one!
To make democracy work, we must be a nation of
participants, not simply observers. One who does not
vote has no right to complain. Louis L'Amour
