We've just put up a story up which recaps the campaign and election for the Prescott City Council race, and other issues that popped up during 2009. See: Recapping The 2009 Prescott Council Election Campaign
All of these antics and twists and turns in this election, reminds me of the fact that we live in a country where we have the freedom to vote; and that includes the freedom to question and challenge and protest and even get the courts involved as a mediator if necessary.

A reader sent me this cartoon recently. It was created in 1948, and it's a little dated, but a lot of fun. The issues may be different, but, then again, maybe they're not. In my opinion, the overall message is timeless.
I hope you'll take time to watch it, and offer your comments - whether you agree or disagree. Because we're allowed to disagree, yes, we're even encouraged to disagree.
After all, it's part of our freedom.
