Phone Calls and Politics
Anyway, usually the calls we get via our land line have been from friends and families, plus the occasional wrong numbers and sporadic telephone solicitors. But in the weeks leading up to the election, the vast majority of calls have been political--surveys, robocalls on behalf of various candidates, even neighbors calling to urge us to vote for people they like.
I know that a number of you have gone "cellular only" with your phones. For those who have done that, how have things gone since you made the switch? And for those, like us, who have kept their land lines, what are your reasons--inertia, a desire to be able to make and receive calls if the towers are down, what?
Let me know. And, in case anyone is interested, we voted absentee a couple of weeks ago. No politics involved in this post...except the calls that finally triggered action on my part.
