Got my second e-mail from a band that had been a band of the day. This
time it was Woozy Helmet a
group I wrote about here. They offered to
put me on the guest list if they tour through my city (not knowing
what it was – a Houston band on tour has a real good chance of hitting
Atlanta.) The google age strikes again! I’m not actually writing these
entries to suck up to people and get free passes and stuff, but I’ll
take it when it comes.

I did my 3 hours with the Max Cleland campaign – what exhausting,
terrible work! I know it needs to be done, but don’t they have any
ditches I could dig instead? Whew. I made about 250 calls in those 3
hours, of which the vast majority were no answers. We weren’t supposed
to leave messages, so we just skipped them, Presumably they go back in
the hopper for the next crews. I talked to about 35 people, all but 3
of whom were voting for Senator Cleland. Two great old guys, one 80
and one 88 and both veterans of WW II, engaged me in
conversations. They were the high point of the day, telling me about
voting for Roosevelt and such. I had considered doing more, but
frankly I don’t have it in me. I can’t imagine being the candidate and
campaigning for several months.
