Since there's been a spate of people adding me to their friends list lately, and since the initial entries are out of easy visibility at this point, let me remind you that
this journal is fictive. Not everything you read here is true. Not everything you read here is even roman a clef. This journal is fiction. It is not true. It is lies. Falsehoods. Untruths. Foma. Malfeasances. Misrepresentations.
The preceding statement is deliberately self-inclusive.
Let me also remind you of the words of Mark Twain:
Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted;
persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished;
persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot.

Okay, that said, welcome aboard!
  • I didn't realise you were running for Governor.
    • me? Governor?

      I'm sure you realize that I would have to be Republican or a crook to run for governor of this state. This state of things came to the public eye with Richard Milhous Nixon's first gubernatorial victory-- though this status quo has perpetuated since at least 1835, when a Mr. Tucker, proprietor of a general store in what was then Yerba Buena (and is now San Francisco), became the first anglo to reside in the MEXICAN state of California, and within 20 years, they'd overthrown the Spanish-Mexican government and named it a state. No no, no corruption here!
      This default may go further back, given the legendary corruptibility of Mexican bureaucratic officials, but I think over 150 years is far enough back for one morning's voyage.
      • Re: me? Governor?

        But how many governors have you actually impeached and/or imprisoned?

        Oklahoma's record since 1907:

        Jack Walton: impeached within a year of taking office
        Henry Johnston: impeached
        David Hall: made it through his term but was indicted by federal grand jury
        three days after leaving office then sentenced to 3 years for
        extortion and conspiracy
        David Walters: plea-bargained felony indictment down to misdemeanor conviction
        while in office (avoided impeachment by promising not to run again)

        I think one of the territorial governors was impeached, also.
        • Re: me? Governor?

          I think back in the day when Ralston, Stanford, and Sutro ran the show (pre-1920), someone was offered the chance to resign before he got crucified. I'm a bit sketchy on that, I'll freely admit.
