This time, Harry Reid defend junk mail as a publicservice to senior citizens. From Real Clear Politics:
"I'll come home tonight here to my home in Washington and there'll be some mail there. A lot of it is what some people refer to as junk mail, but for the people who are sending that mail, it's very important," Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid (D-Nevada) said on the Senate
floor today. "And when talking about seniors, seniors love getting junk
mail. It's sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like
they're part of the real world," he added.
You know, it actually explains a lot. Junk mail must be the only way Reid, 72 years old himself, manages to stay marginally connected to the real world.
