I Hear You Knockin’ But You Can’t Come In

This week’s Party Crasher is by the fabulous Erica C. Barnett on the “joys” of doorbelling. Yes, the election has even invaded everybody’s favorite boozy party column. Here’s a taste:

Most of the few people who answer the door are receptive, if curt. “I’m still thinking about it,” one says. “Probably,” another answers when prodded to tell us whether we can count on her support. And, in the day’s most frightening encounter, a bathrobe-clad woman with a towel on her head bangs loudly on her window, mouthing what I assume to be something like “GO BACK TO SEATTLE YOU FUCKING HIPPIES.”

Will the roving house-to-house political party ever find the home of anti-transit developer Kemper Freeman? Read Party Crasher to find out.
