Well then. I just found out some interesting news.

Mayorial elections are coming up for Millwood, where I live. The old mayor, Jean Batson, who's been mayor for something line 2,000 years, isn't running again and so the race is between two men. One is named Dan Mork. The other is Robert Mankin. Some of you may recognize the name from former posts of mine and/or Mikel's. This is the guy who lives next door to Susan who has butted heads with Bait on many occasions and Mikel on some as well. The guy is a blatant racist and now he wants to be the mayor of our little town here. What joy that would be.

Luckily, the Morks are a well established and very popular family here. Dan has been on the city council for something like 16 years. Mankin probably hasn't got a chance in hell of winning. I know that I'm making sure everyone I know votes in this election. Him as mayor could be a real pain in the ass and I would imagine he'd do everything he could to give Bait, at the very least, as much trouble as he could.

Some people just don't need to be in politics. Sadly, too many of these people are.

Good vibes accepted. Curses against Mankin really welcome. Donations too, but I don't expect that to work. I just had to sneak that in there!

Wow, it's hard to believe that it's only four days until Christmas. What a cool thing! I need to finish some Christmas shopping, but that's hopefully happening tonight. Luckily, we've gotten the bulk of it done already, which is a nice change. Usually we're caught in the Christmas Eve rush, wondering if we'll be able to manage everything. No such worries this time! It's a good feeling, it is.

To catch up on other things that have been going on, I went to the police station yesterday for some talk. Yes, I figured I'd do it in person instead of calling. It's so much harder to be put on hold that way, after all. John didn't like the idea of me going there, or even talking to them, but I won't be interfered with when it comes to some things. I had my say, which makes me happy. And got an apology out of the deal, because he knew they were out of line about it. After all, they don't follow up on all tips, and this one obviously wasn't all that solid.

Hopefully we won't run into this kind of trouble again. It just annoys the hell out of me that people are suspects simply because of their race. This has to change someday, and I wish that it would happen soon. It was cathartic to rant, though. I enjoy not letting people get a word in edgewise when I'm doing that, because it's quite satisfying to know that I can shut them up and make them look sheepish. And he did, too. I'm not going to just sit still and let people harass my kids, and I made a big point of that with him. I also warned him that we have a number of guests of which Mankin won't approve, and that with his becoming more and more of an annoyance, they may end up with conplaints, tips, etc. from the man. We'll see what happens there. I'm still considering talking to Mankin and giving him a piece of my mind, so we'll see there, too. Susan is keeping an eye on the place since she took in some of the group of people that came up, and so that could be interesting. She's going to call if something starts so I don't miss it. He won't like having to deal with some of these people, I can guarantee that. They're very cool, after all.

I guess that's it. Hopefully I'll get to go shopping soon. I'm sure Becky would love to keep an eye on the baby when we go. She did go sooooo long without her, after all. Poor Becky was deprived. I'm sure she agrees.
