My grandfather says he wants to put a big sign in his yard that supports Kerry. He’s very fired up about this. My grandmother won’t let him. She doesn’t want the neighbors to see. “But that’s the point!” my grandfather says.

I love knowing where my activist-y streak comes from: Good ole Papa, former union organizer and town council candidate who registered as a Republican just so he wouldn’t get run out of town.

He usually refers to Bush as “this guy here…” as in “this guy here, he’s working for the oil companies, he doesn’t care about Joe down the street with the four kids…”
