The Wednesday Slice question

If your neighborhood is infested with campaign signs for political candidates you sincerely believe to be repugnant, what goes through your mind as you survey this thicket of baffling (or not so baffling) front-yard endorsements on your way to and from home?

A) "I need to get my own signs." B) "I am a stranger in a strange land." C) "Democracy is swell." D) "Why did we pick this area?" E) "Don't really care. Politics wouldn't even make my Top 20 when it comes to things I actually care about." F) "I like being a nonconformist." G) "Is there something in the water here?" H) "Thank God I live in an era when people don't actually know their neighbors." I) "I need to remind my kids that moving away is a time-honored American tradition." J) "To each his own." K) "Maybe I need to go door-to-door around here and offer these benighted saps the benefit of my wisdom."  L) Other.
