It’s cryin’ time again in Tiny Kingdom

To the editor:
Warning!
Reading this may give you a headache, or it may cause you to cry! (The Surgeon General asked me to post that warning.)
Well, my friend, summer is almost gone and winter’s coming on…if I use any more I’ll have to pay a royalty! The foliage is about to peak and the “silly season” (political campaigning) is in full swing.  Election Day, or as I like to call it, “Term Limit Tuesday” is right around the corner.
When you’re involved in politics during the silly season one of the popular things to do is to consult with the other kingdoms on how we can better share resources.
This is political theater to show the little people in the various kingdoms, those would be the Tiny Kingdom of course, the Little County Seat Kingdom, and the Littlest Kingdom of All, which sits at the top of the hill and is always ready to be painted by this generation’s Norman Rockwell; that something is being accomplished!
It’s always an impressive site to see all that brainpower assembled in one room. One of the wise elected officials suggested that maybe the three little kingdoms could share a dump truck. Well there you go, that’s why he has his hand on the helm.
