City Council Won’t Get Its Spice

By: Mr. Wilson on April 1, 2009
Drat. The Lincoln City Council won't get any extra spice this round, because "Dr." John Haltom won't be on the ballot. Not that he was probably going to win a seat anyway. I suppose less likely things have happened... I wasn't so much rooting for the Doctor on the issues as I was for the sideshow he represented. Politics is too often far too boring. When people like John Haltom show up it gets the public interested. One hopes that as a side effect voters also learn a bit about the issues. Voters tend to be frighteningly ignorant when they head to the polls. Anything that gets a little actual data into their heads -- as opposed to merely biases and preconceived notions -- is a good thing in my book.
