Blue finger

When a citizen votes in the election, their finger is stained with indelible blue ink to prevent voting more than once.

A commentator on MSNBC echoed a point I had been thinking about since last week: in Sunni areas, having a blue finger is a clear sign you voted in the election, potentially making you a target.

Latest AP update: 17 killed -- but note AP's numbers include the three confirmed suicide bombers themselves, as well.
