CENSUS CONSENSUS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Eyes were popping at 7th and Montana this morning as a group of Census Workers made the scene for a brief training session before going door-to-door across the neighborhood. "Ay, ay, ay," I said, grabbing my Spycam and zooming-in for a closer look, "Don't these people have a dress code?!?" One wore sandals, another a "hippie/beatnik" sweatshirt and a third seemed intent on tuning the rest of them out with his iPod. The woman did most of the talking. "Remember," she said, "We're just here to help ..." I'm the first person to recommend filling out the Census form, but these people looked more Senseless than Census. The good news is, they can add one to the local tally: Neighbor Hunter (pictured below) announced yesterday that he and his wife, Camilla, are expecting a son in September. The crowd immediately began suggesting names: Shamus, Chauncey, Maurice, Chance, Gatherer and Instinct were among the top contenders. "Don't you worry," I told Hunter, "We'll come up with something ... I'll open it up to the Internet!" If any of you have any bright ideas, by all means propose them. Otherwise, I'm afraid we'll be stuck with a Monty in our midst ...!

You think there would be some kind of dress code. Seriously who would open their door to someone who looks shady. (Hugs)Indigo

I'll submit my Dad's name, which is cool in an old school kind of way: Ezra. One of his nicknames was Zeke.
