Edit: Beware Of Mailbox Propaganda

An editorial in today's Coeur d'Alene Press concludes with this warning: "Beware any last-minute political incendiary devices that have been timed to go off too late for the other side to respond. Be particularly wary of any campaign literature that lands in your mailbox between now and Tuesday. If it touts one candidate's strengths or offers a cogent comparison of the track records or political differences between opponents, great. But if it makes allegations that raise your eyebrows or give your stomach a queasy feeling, our suggestion is to relegate it immediately to the recycling bin. The stench it leaves in the bin could be overwhelming, but those who pick up the trash are experienced at dealing with such things." More here.

Question: Do you expect to see hard-hitting attack fliers in your mailbox this weekend?
