Wow. The section where it says "Asked since" (insert year here - especially 1960-2008) is interesting.

A census taker was here today, he left our census forms.

Looking at these questions I do not think of them as being overly intrusive at all.

yea, right... I was thinking of that possible outcome and decided not to try for this as a part time job.

Unfortunately, they don't encourage Census workers to be armed and to shoot first. I am a risk taker, but not ill considered ones...

As a former door-knocking, home-visiting worker bee, I hope that all the census workers are adequately trained in self-defense, assessing situations and environments, and other possible safety hazards (dogs, muddy/icy driveways, etc.).

We got a letter today telling us the census form was to follow next week. Great waste of money sending out a pre-census warning letter. Also reassuring was the fact the message was written in no less than five foreign languages as well.

Yep, got that same letter today - what a monumental waste of money to send an advance letter.

Yeah, me too. There already were a couple incidents in Harrington.

WLBZ2.com | Bangor, ME | Two female census workers are assaulted

Actually, I'm not sure what everybody's beef is about. How many of us complain regularly about not being represented by Washington? Besides the Fed form I had to make out for a rifle purchase was the equivalent of shoving a microscope up my ^$#. How could this be worse?
