First I thought it was the Jehovah's Witnesses again

but when I got to the door Sunday afternoon, there stood a young man from the county Democratic Committee, out signing people up to volunteer for the party. I was overjoyed for a couple of reasons: this is the first time outside of an election (when local candidates do show up to introduce themselves) the party is getting ahead of the game, and--more important--this was a *young* person, maybe early twenties, spending part of his weekend doing Glob's work. And he wasn't some weaselly little snot who wouldn't be able to get a date, either--good-looking, great smile--hell, I'd go out with him.

And I took the opportunity to ask him about voter suppression in our area, and he confirmed what I and many of you suspected: there isn't any because, he explained, we're pretty much a heterogeneous population, so who are you going to suppress?

3. I just sent this to the new local party chair

He thinks cleaning up the river is what the party should be doing and they are.
