The “controversy” over Johnson County’s plan to cull the deer overpopulation in Shawnee Mission Park is starting to get ridiculous considering the people protesting are participants in the suburban sprawl that encircled the deer on all sides and created the problem.
It’s great to see the beige people finally excited about a civic issue, but it’s too bad the rage isn’t directed at something really important. For example, why aren’t they closing down I-35 until everyone has viable transit options? Or blockading Blue Valley High School until all kids have a decent education. Or picketing Menorah Medical Center until all Kansas Citians have health care. Or burning down Hen Houses until every neighborhood has access to fresh, affordable food.
