Amanda Jones, 109, the daughter of a man born into slavery, has lived a life long enough to touch three centuries. And after voting consistently as a Democrat for 70 years, she has voted early for the country's first black presidential nominee.

Regardless of your affiliation, that's awesome.

Hell yeah it is, at 109 she's got my great grandmother beat by one year, and when she was born VanGogh was doing some of his best work.
