So my home county has no elections today…

…and the town in which I live is scattering throughout three counties, but only officially part of one.  The one that I don’t live in.  So it’s entirely possible that I actually have no elected officials set over me.  Which means that I could very well declare myself to be a baron, swear fealty to the Howard County Executive, and thus end up getting the Low and Middle Justice over my neighborhood.

Not that I’d take that job.

    1. It deleted that humorous musing I had stuck in there wondering what they made in Maryland because I put it in brackets….

  1. All Hail Lord Lane of …er, Place! May his rule be long and benevolent, because we could totally do worse.

      1. “Your permit for replacing existing black-shingle-roof with new black-shingle-roof has been denied, this month we are only approving green roofs .. no, the *color* green, no plants or solar gizmos.”

        1. Outsourcing. I can utilize scientific management and wall to wall therapy to improve the intelligence of Marylanders.

  2. You are my friend, and I tell you this three times: You are not suited to hold public office. Note that I do not say *fit*… but public office would not suit your talents or your disposition. Serve as Loyal Opposition, yes, no matter who is in charge.

    I would strongly consider voting for your wonderful wife if she were to run, but I think that even less likely than seeing you throw your hat into the ring. She’d probably have more armed followers than you would, though.

  3. Well, the news story is from a couple counties over, but I figure you’d appreciate it.
    Bulls are expensive, and it quite clearly was not suffering any debilitating injuries.
    The rancher could have almost certainly gotten the bull away from the scene with a minimum of fuss.
    I can certainly see him objecting to the deputies wanting to shoot it.
    I also know that the police tend to have a “you WILL respect my authoritah” mindset once they’ve “taken control” of a situation.
    I also know that cattlemen tend to be very stubborn, more than a bit hot-headed, and very protective of their stock.

  4. Not much here. The two teacher union candidates won (no surprise) and both initiatives passed (no surprise either). I was 0-4 for the night. Sometimes that’s how it goes.
