    Once again, it is election time. Who is it going to be this time? Will the voters go with the same old bunch? Let me point out them. Ron Kouchi, Arthur Brun, Mason Chock, Bernard P. Carvalho jr, Ross Kagawa, all similar in background to that superstar. Who was it? Kobe Bryant. Way after my time in high school. Not relevant. Never heard of him. Will the voters still pick candidates with that sort of background? I don’t know.
