Canes, Lemmings, Spot Changers, etc.

By Harry Everhart

Everyone should have a cane. Amazing how well people treat you if you walk with one (especially South Dakota citizens), opening doors, offering to help carry your packages!
People aware of lemmings know of their supposed propensity to commit suicide by throwing themselves off ledges into water.  Science has determined this is not suicide but a way to control their population if their area is too populated for the food sources available.  They can swim and are looking for new land to populate.
Many a leopard or jaguar have wished they could change their spots if caught in the open to make them better blend in with their terrain, (like many of our politicians now).
Like many others, I long for a shorter political season. Really — is not two months sufficient time for a campaign? With cable, the Internet, and all the visual, audio, and print media of today, this would be plenty of time to get your reasons out for why you should be elected or re-elected. If that is not enough time, then probably you have not done enough worthy in your life to be considered as a candidate.
The best answer that I know for these political messes of today is to have Saint Patrick reincarnated and let him use his wand or stick to drive all the snakes of our parties out. Then, he should invent political parties whose only purpose is to serve the best interests of the common people in all ways possible. The rich and the huge corporations appear to do well on their own.
