How much better our country would be if we had notables, celebrities even, encouraging people to fill out the Census. You may recall that the Census form, itself, instructed us to fill it out according to information that was accurate ON APRIL 1, 2010 - even though there were nagging TV ads urging us to "send it in, if you haven't already done so" running prior to April 1, 2010 (which really makes me wonder about whether anyone really reads "words" anymore). Anyway, as I was saying, wouldn't it be a great idea to have famous people - people who inspire us and to whom we look up - encouraging all the laggards (and black-helicopter people) to send in their forms.
"What?" "Oh?" - you say that people we look up to ARE ALREADY JOINING THE EFFORT? Tell me - who is the first person the Census Bureau hired (with taxpayer money? no, surely not)? No, wait; I think I heard you wrong. Did you say Rove? No. Say it ain't so - SURELY THE CENSUS BUREAU DID NOT HIRE THE SLEAZIEST, MOST UNDER-HANDED, MOST ANTI-DEMOCRACY PERSON WHO HAS BEEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE SINCE RICHARD NIXON?
