Nov 6, 2007 here in Portsmouth New Hampshire is Election Day, as I know it is in many towns around the country.
I’m glad today is finally here, not just because we have
the opportunity to exercise our right to vote and have a say
in how our local towns are going to be run, but because all those
campaign signs will be coming down very soon.
Here in Portsmouth, anywhere there’s a couple square
feet of city-owned land, you’ll find that space crammed with campaign
signs from all the candidates running for one office or another.
And that means that just about every intersection you come to, that’s
all you can see. And it’s an ugly sight, in my opinion.
