The Other Election News

Lest you think Barack Obama’s clinching the presumptiveness of the Democratic nomination is the only big election news:

– Pillsbury, North Dakota, held a primary election on June 10th to choose the candidates for mayor and aldermen. None of the 24 residents made it to the polls, not even the candidates who were on the ballot. Unfortunately state law doesn’t allow “Apathy” to take office.

– The residents of a Romanian village re-elected their mayor the other day, even though he died from liver disease before the voting began. “I know he died,” one villager said, “but I don’t want change.” Good idea. Maybe we should start a write-in campaign to elect JFK as president? Or Franklin D. Roosevelt. Heck, let’s elect George Washington again!
