    Went to visit our older daughter in your neck of the woods (Ann Arbor) 2 weekends ago and the 3 of us knocked on doors.  We had materials for people to apply for absentee ballots, also materials on volunteering, and we talked to people who were undecided.  And like you, of course, it was unpaid (well, except by the satisfaction of doing it!).

    If, in our efforts to win, we become as dishonest as our opponents on the right, we don't deserve to triumph.

      •  We spent our week vacation (0+ / 0-)

        on Lake Michigan, south of Saugatuck.  God, it's gorgeous!  And we're Atlantic Ocean vacationers normally.
        Love your state (and really enjoyed the fresh blueberries and apples).
