Why It's Hard to Cut Offices

Read this account from the Hays (Kansas) Daily News of a meeting discussing closing a county office. If each of the 223 people at the meeting write their Representative and Senators, don't you think that Pat Roberts and Sam Brownback will respond to the concerns?

Or read this account from the Emporia Gazette.

[Note: I've set up a Google Alert for Farm Service Agency items. From that haphazard sampling, it appears that Kansans raise the most hell about closings. Maybe they're all descended from Mary Elizabeth Lease, who famously talked about raising less corn and more hell.]

To govern is to choose, but mostly humans would prefer not to.
