Meanwhile, back at the ranch, this letter appeared in our local paper...
It's good to know that our hanging judge won't be using the bench for anything other than passing judgement and handing down sentences anytime soon.
A similar letter appeared in the paper a few weeks before the last mayoral race. The mayoral challenger was on full-time oxygen (carts around his tank that feeds him fresh o2 directly to his nostrils) and felt the need to address concerns about his health to the voting public.
While on the one hand, I'm glad that the senior members of our town, regardless of existing health conditions, are still interested in actively participating it the public service arena.
On the other hand, what's next?
