We received a post card in the mail last week, telling us that we'd be receiving a letter from the US Census bureau next week - to fill it out and mail back right away. We also saw an ad in a local newspaper that US Census workers would be coming door to door to ask questions.....all so the government could determine our share of Federal funding for various programs, allocate funds correctly, blah blah blah.
Isn't that just redundant & wasteful? A postcard to announce a letter, an ad to announce paid workers coming door to door, and elaborate tv commercials? What's next - Skywriters? Text Messages? Messages in bottles? Road blocks?
