On Sunday morning, as we usually do, we, the Snowed family, had had a great morning at our church and were walking back to the car. And what do we find on our windshield but a flyer advertising specials at a nearby restaurant.
Okay, I'm sorry, but I find placing flyers on windshields of cars in church parking lots to be incredibly tacky. (I don't really care for it the rest of the week, either, but I find this worse.) Mrs. Snowed came right out and said this made her much less likely to visit this restaurant in the future, and I tend to agree with her. To me, finding a flyer on my windshield after church is about the same as getting obtrusive sales calls at home during dinner.
But maybe I'm wrong. Has placing junk advertising on people's windshields while they are at church become an acceptable technique? Am I being overly sensitive? Or do you believe this is annoying, if not invasive?

Copy the dialogue box below the fold and post it across the Internet.BarbinMD's current front pager on Palin's latest idiocy got me thinking about a little payback for Palin's part in promoting the "death panels" nonsense.
By linking to the Politico story on Palin's appearance on Limbaugh's radio show, highlighted in Barb's post with this graph:
Palin painted the race as part of "a clearer and clearer picture that what Americans are seeking – even in a district there in New York – they are seeking common sense conservative solutions to all the problems that we are facing."... and suggesting the fictional copy block, below, contains the full Palin quote, we will be giving Palin a dose of her own medicine. Most people will read the quote and believe Palin really did say something that inane. And I would love for her to have to refute it the same way she had to refute Tina Fey's "front porch" quote.
PALIN: I think it (NY-23 race) made a clearer and clearer picture that what Americans are seeking – even in a district there in New York – they are seeking common sense conservative solutions to all the problems that we are facing.
LIMBAUGH: What kind of "common sense conservative solutions" are you talking about?
PALIN: You know, Rush, like all these contracts let out willy-nilly under the stimulus package to repave roads and the like that could have gone directly to hard-working Americans who would've been more than happy to pave their own roads like the streets in front of their homes themselves with stuff they could have bought from the Home Depot so we could have not only been repaving the roads but also stimulating our economy by having millions of hard-working Americans, regular Joe Six-Packs, buying paving stuff at Home Depot or their local hardware stores and the like.
