Or is this a new sort of political information gathering?
Here in Albuquerque, the race for mayor is on, with two challengers hoping to unseat the incumbent mayor. He, in turn, waited until the last minute to declare his official candidacy, turning in his paperwork late on the last day before the deadline.
When he finally did declare his candidacy, he opened an office in a small strip mall just around the corner from Gerald's old high school. The building is new, but it was completed just in time for the economic downturn, so it's nearly empty. There's only one other tenant – a psychic offering tarot and palm readings, among other services.
