It seems to me that some places in small town New Hampshire (is there any other kind of New Hampshire, I wonder) have it about right.
Danny sent me this picture a week or so ago when the first primary of the season was under way.
Politicians, it seems, find it easier to get to people when they're out and about, rather than go knocking on doors. One of the best places to "nab" someone is a café or restaurant (which Americans use far more than we do), where the poor soul is captive until such time as he or she has managed to gulp his food and coffee and make a hasty exit.
So much so that café owners have got round to the idea that to attract more customers, even if it means shutting out the man who who might just be the next president, the best idea is to bar the politicos!
Not a bad idea really, is it?
It occurred to me as I read the notice that America restaurateurs must be better schooled than our equivalents. Without a doubt we at best would have had: "No Politician's No Exception's"
