I just got a free Austin American-Statesman newspaper delivered to my house. I'm not a subscriber, but apparently Texas State Representative incumbent (and likely winner) Mark Strama paid for this issue so it included a wrapper touting his renewable energy plans for Texas. You know what's not very renewable, takes a lot of energy to produce and deliver, and doesn't help the environment? A newspaper. Especially one whose entire content is available for free online. But I guess this has more cachet than the usual litter-flyer on the porch.
This message brought to you by the local 2008 elections with the apparent theme of "I guess I'm voting despite their efforts to convince me not to vote for them." This is why folks don't vote.
