      Dear Mr. Rogers:

      I am sorry to tell you this, but do you have the Conditions of Approval (form 23-454672-A) from the county planning department? You can’t just build a town any where you want to. What would happen if everyone decided to just build a town any place they wanted to? It would almost be like America before the governments took over and ruined everything. Do you think you can do what you want to on the land you own? If we didn’t have proper land use laws, we would be just that much closer to anarchy. Do you know how bad that would be? Well, neither do I, but that is besides the point. The point is the purpose of our government is to prevent everyone from doing anything. So cease and desist all of this subversive activity or we will have to get really nasty about this. Just play by the rules and everything will be fine. Just drink the purple Cool-Aid.

      Yours truly,

      A mindless cog in the bureauacracy

      Dear Mr. Spurgeon,

      We have authorization to build on our land, its called a treaty. It has been codified in US code 18-1163-5a-3. Mr. Rogers Neighborhood is a dependent indigenous community of the sovreign band of GBSFI Natives. GBSFI Natives possess a world wide culture with its own distinct tribal rituals. Some rituals are, but not limited to IVIG, Plasma pherisis. GBSFI Natives are indigenous to this planet.

      I think I need legal representation too. Mr. Spurgeon you can be our legal counsel.:eek:

      🙂 It has come to the attention of the Supreme Counsel of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood that similar international case law exists for the recognition of a state. Please see the history of “Sealand” a residence located outside of the three mile boundarys of England, and within the twelve mile boundary. A court in England has determined it had no jurisdiction there.:confused:

      It was recently reported that a sister city existed in the great state of Pennsylvania.

      Upon further investigation by the staff of “The Jolly Rogers” , the city paper of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, it was found that the site mentioned and presented in an earlier post is in fact an insane asylum.

      Among the many residents of this same asylum are individuals who claims to be Captain Kangaroo, Joe Pa and President Bush. It would all be quite comical except that Bush keeps deploying his troops to the womens bath room to protect the kurds. The resident Bush has a problem distinguishing between the letters K and T. I dont know why, it may just be a weakness of the citizens of this region of Pennsylvania. :p

      So what form of Government does this new neighborhood, city or state propose? Think about a true democracy. Focused on the individual not the state, city or neighborhood. Now is the time to ask what will this adventure really be about and were will it lead? Getting better is an effort not luck.

      There was a heck of an ice storm in Mr. Rogers neighborhood. Thank you for the good wishes. Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood has just been returned electrical power back on. It feels like christmas to have the power back on after all this time. Its been six days. Mr. Trolley froze up on the rails and couldnt maintain adequate pressure.

      It has been cold but we have been lucky. Mr. Roger’s bought propane and a propane heater at the corner store. Mr Owl and Mr Cat were cooking on the grill at the trolley station dock. There is also a stram flowing through Mr. Rogers neighborhood. Mr. Owl got buckets of water out of it and we heated that up. Mr. Cat also got buckets of water for the cattle and sheep. Mr. Owl and Mr. Cat really did a great job. Im so proud of them.

      It felt pretty cold but the Owl and the Cat worked their tails off. They were out side doing things so the other inhabitants of Mr. Roger’s neighborhood could survive. A lot of animals abandoned their homes. Mr Rooster froze to death. That was the guidance on the power companies 800 number. “We advise you to seek other shelter”. I’m sure many animals are coming back to damaged homes. The Owl kept a candle going in the well house and underneath the house in the access space to ensure that the plumbing did not freeze. And it did not freeze. We were ready as soon as the power came back on.

      It was so cold we had to pull start the trolley every day for the past few days to start it. I think the battery might have been damaged by the cold. But they learned how to do that to. Mr. Owl s my right hand man there. Mr Cat has been watering the pigs and going up on the ridge to break ice for the calves up there. There are places out side of Mr Roger’s neighborhood that may not get power for 30 to 60 days they say. It was so cool. The have apparently been crews coming in from other neighborhoods. I heard there were a thousand crews out around the McAlester Oklahoma area alone. A couple of days ago we made it out of here and were going into town for supplies. We passed a small army of utility and tree cutting vehicles heading up towards the ridge leading into the spring creek Terisita area.

      It was also pretty neat last night when we met some tree cutting crews from asplundah getting to work on our property andwhere our cattle are grazing. The foreman for that group said to me “There are animals out here who arent going to get power for a couple of weeks……but Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood isn’t one of them. I think you will have power tonight or tomorrow”. Pretty good guess. I never would have believed it after seeing all the damage out here. It looks like a frozen hurricane hit this place.

      Well anyway, thanks for thinking of us, Im really certain it helped. The smaller animals thought we were camping out in the living room,…. child hood can be kind of nice in its innocence, but it was stressful wondering how far we could stretch to take care of the family.

      It was just too cold and treacherous. Many many tress froze and cracked and fell. It sounded like rifles and firworks being set off.

      I’m next! I line up the ball, swing the club, the ball narrowly misss the swinging windmill blades, goes into the clowns mouth, slides down the chute towards the volcano. The ball rising to the edge of the volcano, teeters at the rim, loses momentum, and slowly rolls backwards, heads back into the chute, back out the clowns mouth, through the windmill where it is hit by a swinging blade back into the parking lot. A garbage truck rolls by the golf course and pinches the ball with it’s passenger side front tire, shooting the ball off into a cornfield. Hot Damn! That was my best shot this year! At least no one died.

      I’d mulligan this one but it’s not like I’m a former president or something. I’m going to need a driver just to get back to the golf course.

      I cross the highway and start chasing after my ball. It’s a good thing I thought ahead and wore my track shoes. I come to a low wire fence and see my ball just a few yards past the fence. I step over the fence into the cornfield, unfortunately, the edges of the cornfield were freshly ploughed and my one foot begins to sink into the soft dirt. I say unfortunately because, upon closer examination, I notice a row of insulators holding up the top wire of the fence. Maybe the electricity isn’t flowing today, I hope. I discovered that the electricity was indeed flowing with a jolting charge in the nether regions. “ZZZZZZZZZZTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!” said the fence as I jumped 15 feet into the air. My golf club went an additional 25 feet into the air, which would normally be an insignificant detail except for that low flying helicopter providing news coverage of a garbage truck collision with a school bus and a family of baby ducks. My golf clubs were cut into hundreds of sub-standard length mini-clubs by the helicopters tail rotor.

      Luckily, I landed next to dead corn snake. The head of the snake was just the right shape, the length of the snake was just about right, and the snake was right-handed as well. Did the ancient Scotts quibble about what was or wasn’t a legal golf club? No, I think not. So I will do no quibbling as well. I lined up the ball, wiggled my butt, and swung hard enough to make it back onto the fairway. Unfortunately, the snake really wasn’t dead after all, but was merely doing his yoga routine. The snake, seeing the ball rush at his face at high speed, did what he could to protect his face and grabbed the ball in his mouth, spitting it out on the backswing and sending the ball in the opposite direction, over the hill and into a quails nest. With the ball laying 1,700 yards from the fairway, I’m going to need to find me a bigger snake.
