My wife and I officially completed our duty as Americans by casting our votes last week. Fortunately, I didn’t cast them in those, once revered, blue United States Mail Boxes, making certain mail was to be delivered without being stolen. According to the U.S. Mail Box Outlet Barn I use when the rain keeps our local mailmen or women at home, I was told, specifically, not to use the mailboxes outside their outlet because people commonly pour unfinished chocolate milkshakes, including other refuse, from the local McDonald’s into the box after closing time. It made me so proud to be an American. It also reminded me of how proud I am of the two Presidential candidates.
