When I was a Cub Scout in 1952, ten years old, we were given a daunting task.
The 5,000-person town of Easton, Maryland, where my father served as President of the Town Council, was divided up and we Cubs were told to put Liberty Bell-shaped door hangers on doors.
It was an intimidating task, but I remember my first door.
It had a long, wooden porch with the door at the end. It was on the corner of an alley (maybe just a small street) that had houses facing it about two blocks from our home at 212 S. Aurora Street.
Now the same idea has been picked up by Americans for Prosperity.
I find it ironic that I passed out Get Out the Vote door hangers the year that Eisenhower first got elected and the Americans for Prosperity quote Ike on the need to vote:
“The future of this republic is in the hands of the American voter.”
