Today marks the end of the junk mail (how many trees were harmed in the making of this election season?), the robo-calls from elected officials, strangers knocking on the door, and other intrusions into my regularly scheduled life by that 11-letter word politicians (said with the same tone of voice Jerry Seinfeld used for the mailman, Newman). I live in a district where both the state senator and representative positions were contested. Rather nastily. And, just to make things more annoying for those of us who enjoy our privacy, the sheriff, commonwealth's attorney, and supervisor positions were contested as well. That means we had we had 4 to 8 pieces of junk mail per day for the last month, innumerable robo-calls in the last week, and at least 10 people came to the door.
