Found this tucked into the door handle of my car while doing some grocery shopping in a fairly conservative suburb of St. Louis. I wasn’t looking for a response to my Obama bumper sticker, but I got one anyway. Then again, maybe the note-writer is merely expressing his/her displeasure with unintelligent Groucho fans who have questionable hygiene. Or maybe the question is meaningless and it’s someone protesting Bo Jackson.
My friend Eve lives on a private street with four properties off of a main road. The mailboxes are lined up all four on one metal frame. One of those properties is owned by a hoarder. It is a corner propety so it’s really visible from the main road. Its a really trashy property. Eve and the other neighbours just hate them. A few weeks before the elections, this flyer started appearing. Eve suspects it might be one of the neighbours that made it– who knows.

I found this on a bench while waiting for the Lexington Ave. subway. It’s so carefully crafted and the sentiment rings so true, that I had to pick it up. Oddly, it’s drawn on the back of a truck driver’s pay stub, which I think somehow adds to the authentic feel of it. My girlfriend wouldn’t tell me if she was for Clinton or Obama, but she’s clamped onto this bit of ephemera, and says it’s a good luck charm for her (and a vocabulary-builder for both of us, in more ways than one).
