My main thought about the recent election was "thank God it's over." But I had another thought as well. Back many years ago when I started voting, I used to get a lot of mail from candidates telling me how wonderful they were. For the most part, I read the stuff they sent me. This past election I did not receive one single piece of mail from any candidate or preposterous proposition. Not even the bus driver we elected sheriff sent me a single card or letter. No wonder the post office is in trouble.
I think the obsession with choking the airwaves with horrible commercials is counterproductive, as people just want to tune out. How many times do I need to be told some guy's a bum? But, I just don't see why they've completely stopped using the mail to reach people. To me it's an opportunity lost.
