From a New York Times article about the U.S. presidential election in a stateside look:
Ivan Stickles, a carpenter, worked on his motorcycle in his driveway in Hopewell. Mr. Stickles, 57, is not taking what he sees as a gamble on Obama.
"There's this e-mail that he didn't shake hands with the troops," Mr. Stickles said of a rumor that is false. "I don't have the time to check out if it's true, but if it is, it's very offensive."
