Thank you, reb. You make some valid points. However, as far as not knowing your postal worker, I have little doubt you don't know much about the ACORN employee who will be coming by, either.
I realize that liberals (and not necessarily you) seem to disregard the black marks against ACORN, from their strong-arm tactics concerning forcing banks to give loans to unqualified buyers, to all of the legal proceedings against them but they are not an organization I would trust for a second. if you do, that's your right.
Yes, there would have to be some logistical manuevering to make it work and I don't know if it could work or not but saving postal employee jobs and keeping ACORN away from such a wealth of personal information would make it worth checking into, I think.
Btw, since you saw an opportunity to throw a Palin dig in there, I'll tell you a little story. While I was living in Venezuela, I came back to the states to represent Venezuela (sounds weird, I know) in the world bowling championships held in Indianapolis. My companions in the trip were an elderly Venezuelan couple who had been to the states several times. We drove through the midwest to my home town in Missouri and then on to Indiana. I remember them saying, as we drove through the farmlands, "At last, we are really seeing AMERICA!" I said, "Yes, you are."
I'm not sure Sarah Palin's comment was so innacurate.
