A small data point

There's a car on campus that I'd noticed during the fall, sporting a "Make America great again" bumper sticker.

I noticed it partly because I didn't see many bumper stickers around campus for either candidate.

And partly because there were other interesting bumper stickers on the car (and I mean interesting in a neutral sense, not "interesting").

And partly, of course, because I disliked the candidate whose slogan that was.

I saw the car today - I'm sure it's the same car, because of those other interesting bumper stickers.

And the "MAGA" sticker was gone.

The bloom didn't stay on that rose very long.

  1. There was some guy stomping all around campus talking about the "hippies" who'd ripped off his bumper sticker.

    Just kidding, but a missing sticker is not yet a data point. It's a fact, but there are a few more interpretive possibilities to rule out.
