You Say Tomatoes . . .
The Daily Hampshire Gazette notes three households with two lawn signs in Hadley, Massachusetts, each supporting opposing candidates in the forthcoming April 13 election for school committee. In the photo above, Joyce Chunglo supports incumbent Thomas Waskiewicz, while her husband, Daniel, favors challenger Molly Keegan. Of her husband, Chunglo, who is chairwoman of the town’s Board of Selectmen, remarks: “He likes to stir my pot. He isn’t involved in town politics and believes what he reads in the paper.”
Try this at your next party: Ask spouses present how they might deal with their own lawn signage conflicts. My own decision would have been to display pink flamingos. But don’t trust me on marriage counseling. It didn’t work for me. Perhaps that’s an underlying motive for this posting.
