More from the accumulated mail: The flyers from David Ramadan and George Allen must have arrived the same day because they were stacked on top of one another when we got home from a trip. I suppose in the mind of the Ramadan campaign having the same PR firm drop the campaign pieces together could be viewed as a positive since even an untrained eye could tell they came from the same company.

Same layout, same color scheme. Same arrangement of messages (Ramadan has a narrower message, but they did what they could with it.) Same postal indicia, same return address style, exact same phrasing of the addressee (used the same mail list).

For reasons of taste I would have wanted them to arrive separately, but that’s just me. My editorial marks and notes are in yellow.

Bon Bon Man following George Allen around with a video camera

At a political event in Loudoun County tonight, a young man from an organization called Bon Bon Man was following former Virginia Governor and Senator George Allen, attempting to videotape Mr. Allen by standing as close as possible, sometimes with his video camera barely a foot from the head of Mr. Allen or another member of the conversations Mr. Allen was attempting to have.

Another guy at the event – a fellow with a stone-like visage indeed – found it so interesting that he took it upon himself to stand directly in front of the video camera, between Bon Bon Man and his subject, whenever possible.

I was also fascinated and knew you all would be, so to ensure that we should all never forget this amazing fellow, I got his picture for the Web site. If you click on the photos you will get a larger version.
