Let the campaigns begin!
Yesterday I did something that felt very old-fashioned. I put up a sign in my yard for a political candidate on Labor Day. At least in my memory, Labor Day was when campaigns began in earnest and when people began paying attention. Of course, if you are a political/news junkie like I am, you know that is no longer true. Campaigns are a year-round, non-stop machine now. It still felt really good to post a sign for someone I actually know. We need to get signs for the other 2 candidates that we know so we can put them up as well. I am proud that when I cast my vote for these 3 candidates in November I'll be voting for men (they are all men) that I have personally spoken with and can support without reservations.
