As Washington again reminds us of the problems with a government of men, and not angels, Talkeetna, Alaska may have found a reasonable earthly compromise. Their mayor is a cat named Stubbs.
From the Wall Street Journal:
There are no formal surveys, but the mayor’s approval ratings seem high. “He hasn’t voted for anything I wouldn’t have voted for,” says Peg Vos, 61, a retired schoolteacher. “Anything’s better than a human,” adds Gil Gunther, 46, owner of the Antler Outpost.
There is still sanity in this world. Here’s hoping that Stubbs is cat-apulted onto the national stage and perhaps becomes president or Speaker of the House or something. Couldn’t be much worse.
