For political junkies, this is the season to rush to the mailbox
One sure sign of a political junkie revolves around how he responds to mail. And while my wife remains among the ordinary, everyday, healthy crowd, I am clearly afflicted.
Most people sift through mail for bills, belated holiday cards and Amazon packages. Often, they do so over a wastebasket to deposit unopened solicitations and advertisements directly. Mail from candidates and committees usually finds its way into that latter category for normal people.
For me it’s a race to the mailbox to see whose mailing list I’m on and what line of attack or message candidates think will be the most effective. I meet my mailman at the curb with uncomfortable frequency to look for glossy cardstock or letters stuffed with business reply envelopes.
