Steven Rosenberg of the Daily News was right when he commented on my blog about receiving an abnormally large amount of political mailers this election season. Today, I opened my mailbox to find no bills, letters, credit card offers or Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons. All I found were 7 political mailers; 3 of which were variations of Yes on 87 ("Less Foreign Oil. Cleaner Energy").

I'm not trying to be antagonistic about this, because I am voting yes on it, but with some not even printed on recyclable paper, how many trees fell for Prop 87?
