    I had exercised my Constitutional Rights and answered only the first question on the US Census form and sent it in. Been expecting the Census Drone to visit, and today (on Memorial Day!) was that day.

    Opened the door when I heard the tapping, and there stood a woman about thirtyish. Had her Census ID, clipboard and Privacy Statement, as is proper.

    She asked me first to confirm my address, and I did - heck, it's on my mailbox. Then she asked my the first question again, which I answered (again!).

    She then quips, "That means I just need a minute to get the rest of the info."
    I said, "It'll be far less than that."
    Then she asks me my name. I told her, "No."
    So she asks if I will answer ANY of the other questions? To which I simply say "No."
    She closes her notes and says that IS my right, and she thanks me for my time and leaves.
    Went far better than I had expected. [winkthumb]

    Well, it's certainly possible I may end up having to give "The Bum's Rush" to her supervisor later.....

    that's too funny, reminds me of the fun I had earlier in the year with their canvassers in this thread. I gotta figure I'll be getting another visit soon.

    They should get smart and pass out beer and medical marijuana to anyone who fills out the long form. Lines around the block.
