If there's one constant in all of this, it's that no matter the circumstances, in good times and in bad, prosperity and crisis, nothing attracts lunatics like local government. There's something about the chance to be heard by low-level government employees and elected officials who can't tell you go to piss up a rope that just draws them like moths to a blue light. And nobody ever made that point better than "Parks & Recreation" did. It's life imitating art. Only so, so much worse.
Something tells me we'll be seeing a lot more of these. I hope the creative geniuses behind this mashup plan on making more. Have a great weekend, if such things still exist.
