Phill Kline Giving Up?

Yesterday, Phill Kline held another town meeting. During the meeting, he said that he's tired and "doesn’t have the patience he once had for election politics." He's not planning on running for DA in 2008.

I suppose that even Kline understands that if he did run, he would lose even more convincingly than he did last year. Perhaps the defections to the Democratic Party finally got through to the Johnson County GOP. Most likely he's been offered a guaranteed position after he leaves office; he's never held a real job yet and I would be surprised if he was suddenly willing to look for one now.

I wanted to go to the town meeting to hear this first hand, but the Kansas City Food Circle had a farmer's expo at the same time. I'm working on getting my family involved in a CSA (community supported agriculture) where we'll get our vegetables, eggs and meat. We need to get a deep freeze; once we do I'll probably buy, with my in-laws, a side of beef, a hog, sheep, several chickens and a couple of turkeys. If we buy it this way, it's actually cheaper than the stuff at the supermarket, and it's grass-fed with no antibiotics or hormones.

Most of the suppliers that are part of the food circle sell out of everything they produce. That's wonderful, something I hope continues to happen so that this type of direct producer-consumer relationship can grow. Who knows, maybe we'll actually be able to reform our entire food system.
