Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, August 9 is the des­ig­nated day when really bad lead­ers are sup­posed to resign. Unfor­tu­nately, really bad lead­ers gen­er­ally lack self-awareness, so they don’t know how bad they are … and they gen­er­ally don’t leave office with­out help from a fir­ing squad. In fact, the only really bad leader who ever took advan­tage of the tribe’s Really Bad Leader Res­ig­na­tion Day was Richard Nixon in 1974. Every­one should freshen the air in honor of Tricky Dick’s exit from pub­lic life. If enough peo­ple do so, per­haps oth­ers will fol­low Nixon’s example.

Felton’s role in the leg­end has expanded since the last time we were here! Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, all school age chil­dren in the tribe must com­plete a three-year course in free­dom fight­ing before their 16th birth­day. Taught by tribal elders, the course pre­pares young Moon­al­ice for a life of inde­pen­dence, free from pro­hi­bi­tions. One of the great ben­e­fits of the course is the devel­op­ment of immu­nity to the power trips of oth­ers. The best exam­ple in recent times occurred in Fel­ton on July 13, LIN­de­pen­dence Day. The Moon­al­ice tribe has cam­paigned for Free­dom from Win­dows since 1990. While our alle­giance is to the fruit of Cuper­tino, we came tonight in sol­i­dar­ity with the LIN­de­pen­dence Free­dom Fight­ers of Fel­ton. Win­dows sucks!

Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, you can lead a horse to water, but why would you want to?
