DISPATCH: The Religious Non-Voter
Mike Tatum, 49
Landscaper, Handyman, Evangelist
Big Coppitt Key, FL
Probably won't vote, but likes Pres. Obama if he does.
"He's a Democrat," Tatum said, "and that's about the only reason the country, I think, is doing a little better off now than with the presidents before him."
NOTES FROM THE DISPATCHERS: The "I Love Jesus Chariot" is a religious experience in bicycle form. It caught our eye on the side of US-1; we turned the FLDispatches minivan around immediately. The bike's owner, Mike Tatum, is a man so religious he simply won't vote.
