Mayoral Mystery

I’ll tell you something I despise (don’t I always?): when people call, you answer, and then they say “Who’s this?”, often in a demanding tone. I always say, in a slightly chilly fashion, “Who wants to know?”

I should have done the same the other day. The phone rang and it was “Neesha” with two questions about the upcoming mayoral election. The two questions were, naturally, about whom I planned to vote for in the primary and general. I told Neesha that, honestly, I had no idea. Of the 4 candidates, I believe all have been mayor at least once before, and really it’s hard to tell the difference between most of them.

Yet what I should have said was: “Who’s funding this poll?”
