Better late than never? Not a chance, I'm thinking

This was in my mail yesterday at home (I've edited out my street address). That's yesterday as in March 24:

Too bad for Rosaire Marie Hall that the primary was seven weeks ago.

My wife reminded me that, many years ago, a stack of 'friend to friend' cards in one of my unhappy judicial campaigns was also lost or diverted by the Postal Service until well after the primary. She remembers people telling her weeks afterward: Why didn't you send these sooner? I would have voted for your husband if I'd known....

Thankfully, I'd suppressed all that.

But this untimely delivery almost brings back frightening memories. Ms. Hall has my sympathies.
