Eventually, things could turn bad for Natalie Munroe, but for right now you've got to suppose she's in tall cotton.
It is time for Kansas to think outside the box. Let's face it, we can't afford to do anything else. We have the talent in this state to address problems without bankrupting our taxpayers - even worse than we already have - and still address problems. Take the feral hog problem.

Nelson Mandela spent nearly seven decades fighting for freedom and equality in South Africa as he stood up against the institutionalized racist white-led apartheid rule. He started with peaceful resistance in the 1950s, but eventually joined the armed struggle, his participation in which landed him in prison on the infamous Robben Island.
