TFP Column: The Island of Misfit Legislators
Halloween is this weekend, Thanksgiving is less than a month away, and it seems that Christmas is around the corner. On top of all this, the election is next week. So it's of little surprise that my thoughts have managed to connect completely disparate subjects into a commentary on what might happen to incumbent politicians after the results are announced.
Such was the inspiration for "The Island of Misfit Legislators", a curious connection between an stop-animation classic, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", and next week's electoral results.
This being the weekend before the election, I'm sure that there is more than enough information for even the most undecided of voters to come to some conclusions before going off to the polls, including a number of voices speaking out on Issue 5 in Toledo. (You are going to the polls aren't you? Come on people! Those intelligent enough to read this blog and the TFP have to be responsible enough to exercise their franchise.)
So enjoy the cooler weather, curl up with Toledo's largest Sunday circulation newspaper, and find out what's going on while you're waiting for that annoying bunch with their hands out (not those cute little Trick or Treaters, I mean politicians running for office).
