Last week I went to the post office for the first time in three years. I planned to use the self-service, but it wasn’t working, so I had to go into the main service area. I was masked and keeping distance, but when you are called to the counter you can’t do that. Another patron was wearing his mask only covering his mouth. I asked him to please pull it up over his nose. He got in may face, sneered, and pretended to pull it up. The next patron was not wearing a mask at all. She said she was vaccinated and didn’t need a mask. I said I was at high risk. She said then I should not be out.

But really, there are no “off-year” elections. A tried truism is that all politics are local. And this year, offices from school boards and town councils to representatives in the Statehouse, Congress and the United States Senate will be on the ballot.
