Obviously you weren't listening closely. I'm paraphrasing here, but when Mary brought up "what if there aren't enough people willing to volunteer," he replied with "then we can look at the budget and consider buying a shuttle to pick up people to take them to vote." Burning down a school where children attended classes and housed many of the special needs students at the time is minor?…

Believe me, Adams County voters are not stupid. However they deserve to be educated. Jeff Scott (Jonathan Shonekase) will not be voted in as long as everyone knows the truth. I'm not sure why Jeffery Scott would think everyone has that short of a memory. Does anyone know of a free shuttle to Mexico? Siberia maybe? Anyone else willing to make a "donation" to send a shuttle to either place?

I am not aware yesqcy is running for any political office so your request isn't valid.

What is Steampunk? 

The Steampunk community has described their philosophy as such: "Steampunk is a creative social movement that draws inspiration from Victorian and pre-War history in an anachronistic mix of science fiction, modern values, and a sense of fun." Steampunkers are, by and large, creative people who immerse themselves in the Victorian era yet live in the modern-day world...but imagine that the steam power of the Industrial Revolution is what drives their modern technology instead of electricity.

It is the "Future Past That Never Was", a re-imagining of history and its subsequent [fictional] consequence on today's society. Steampunk is deeply rooted in the Victorian era's perspectives on fashion, culture, architectural style and art, and its followers incorporate this style into their manner of dress, their living spaces, their transportation, etc. Steampunkers are highly creative people, DIY-ers who enjoy creating elaborate costumes and gadgets to celebrate their love of history, science, fantasy and fiction.

About the Hannibal History Museum:

The Hannibal History Museum Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Missouri not-for-profit corporation that was founded in 2011 by Ken and Lisa Marks. The Museum’s mission is to promote discovery, learning and an appreciation of Hannibal’s natural, cultural and industrial heritage.

The Hannibal History Museum offers free admission to all and is open daily from 10am to 7pm.
