Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

Sunday, May 21, 2006 :::

Cathy Seipp on why she became a Republican:
The reason I changed my voter registration in time for the 2000 election was I realized this would put an end to political canvassers knocking on my door. I hate strangers knocking on my door. And since Republicans never bother with my neighborhood?I'd estimate Silver Lake is more than 95-percent Democrat?that has nearly put an end to that.

It hasn?t been a perfect solution, and I sometimes still feel that familiar weepy sense of self-pity mixed with rage when naïve and / or determined souls march past the big "No Solicitors" sign on my garage, brushing aside the thorny climbing roses I keep untrimmed on the front porch for that very purpose, and (I still can never quite believe it!) knock on the door.
I wish it were possible where I live to approach the door from the inside without being visible to those on the outside. It makes it harder to pretend not to be at home.
