  • The two-story outhouse

    If you have ever used a computer and received emails, you may have seen a photo of a two-story outhouse. It’s a normal-looking structure, except for one thing: The top section is for politicians, and directly under that is a place for the voters. Of course, there is no plumbing, just a hole above and below the voters. You can well imagine what happens inside when a politician is seated above a voter.
    Tuesday night, May 3, the voting public saw the outhouse in action.
