I Can't Relate

It's getting ugly out there:

At 1199, a 250,000-member union local that is part of the Service Employees International Union, [get out the vote] volunteers have been officially given the title "heroes," and with good reason. Some have been attacked by dogs while canvassing, and in Florida, a few collapsed from dehydration from all the door-knocking in July and August.

There are dogs that attack? Excuse me if I can't relate. I don't even get out of bed when the doorbell rings.

In the same article there's this:

A stray bullet hit one 1199 member in the shoulder while he was registering voters in Philadelphia.

That news hits a little close to home. My home.
