The fall out from the local elections is under way. It has been going on since Wednesday (the day after the elections, and probably, before all the results were tabulated). I didn’t think it would take long, but it has taken directions I hadn’t even considered.

Firstly, the MJ ballot in Wichita:

Kansas attorney general asks Supreme Court to block Wichita marijuana measure

Some thing of the sort was almost ordained. So no surprise. Just speed (Um, a poor word choice, perhaps). Now to discover if the courts are progressive or recessive.

The next item is one of the sleeper things. They simmer and bubble in the back ground, no one paying much attention, and they usually have a large impact on things. Then no one expects them to matter but everyone claims they just knew.

Kansas legislators moving toward changing local elections

It seems a small thing, making local elections on national election days, but the additional participation will make a tremendous difference.

Chanute, a city in Eastern Ks, and one in which many in my area trade, though I wouldn’t claim it as local, is indicative of Ks political manners. The way the voter periodically tosses the box and scrambles the pieces of the local power structure.

City officials and current Commissioners react to Tuesday’s election results

A fellow can have fun and find people watching interesting – without getting himself bruised and battered.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
