Reading the Oct. 16 issue of the Observer was my first and last exposure to the councilman election. I don’t care to ingest any more mud slinging, slurs or insults, thank you.

Here is my idea for a quick and clean race that can be done in one afternoon. We all meet up at the rodeo grounds and have an old-fashioned O.K. Corral shootout. You boys wear your cowboy hats and cowboy boots. Strap on those holsters and six shooters. Oh, and wear chaps cuz their so damn sexy!

Of course the kids at the Visitors Bureau will have highly advertised it. I guarantee you will have a crowd bigger than all the Peninsula festivals put together.

Last man standing wins the prize. Saves you all the trouble of slingin’ cowpies at each other on paper.
