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.

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