brought to you by the Latter-Day Saints

Just got visited by two Mormons. Nice young ladies actually. The main speaker looked quite a lot like Julie, the Mormon, from the cast of Real World New Orleans. The second girl looked of Indian heritage. Normally I'd just say "no thank you" and close the door but this time I chatted just a bit with them. Their message this time was a very soft sell. After a while we said our goodbyes and they left.

One thing I've noticed: when I first moved here back in '89 all the Mormons going door to door where young men in their slacks, white shirts and black ties. I have to say, I enjoyed that for rather dubious reasons. Ok, so I liked to ogle them. But in the last 5-6 years I haven't seen any at all. Since then it's been gaggles of young women, or mixed groups of older (40+) members. Was there an official change of tactics or is it just a peculiarity around here?
