and if you'll smell shirley thompson's breath you'll find she's had a little nip of gin

You may have noticed that I have a new link over there in my extremely crowded sidebar. My poor blog. It is such a Grand Old Lady. Sorry I'm not a graphic designer, you guys.

But anyway, the new link is to our Protect Honeyville blog, for any of you who are interested in our ongoing fight against corruption and idiocy.

My mom makes nervous sounds when I wonder aloud about the feasibility of impeachment. She thinks I shouldn't try to make enemies, but I sort of feel like this:

Our town was out of debt during the last mayor's term. Now suddenly we are so deeply in the hole that we can't pay our water bill, and we're courting some sketchy dingbat to build a hideous metal building the size of a football field in the center of our town. Does not this seem like poor governance? Like serious misconduct, even? And bribery is not only possible, but probable. Seems like grounds for impeachment to me. That's not trying to make enemies, that's using the tools I've been given as a citizen to protect my interests from a predatory government.

Now I'm grumpy and thinking about the Patriot Act. I hate Orrin Hatch.

Speaking of the Patriot Act and your sidebar, I feel like your visitor tracker infringes on my civil liberties... :)

And also, the Patriot Act is my China Study. Don't get me started.
