As many of you may already be aware, last month saw the passing of funnyman Robin Williams. He will be missed. In response, his fans chose to honor his life by setting up a memorial at the Parrish Shoes wall in downtown Keene. Parrish Shoes was a fictional store in the William’s movie, Jumanji, which was filmed in the area. The shrine which includes portraits of the late actor, personal letters, and candles has stood for six weeks through rain and shine.
Now, as reported by the Sentinel, the regional coordinator for Monadnock Voices for Prevention and all-round local busybody, Polly Morris has petitioned the city to have it removed. Her reasoning? It may present potential health risks to the mentally unstable. Seriously? I have no doubt her intentions deep down are good, but her actions highlight exactly what is wrong in this world. People trying to control other people. Until the nannies of the world learn to live and let live we will never know peace.
So with that, this month’s Keene Nanny Award goes to Polly Morris. Thank you Polly for your hard work and dedication. Doubtless, without your motherly meddling society as we know it would plunge right back into the Dark Ages. And we can’t have that, so thank you.
Update: The great and wise city Nannies have spoken. Of course, they know best. And for some reason, what they say goes even though they are only a small few. The Robin Williams memorial will be removed 3 days before Pumkinfest (10/15/14). Perhaps the memorabilia will be saved for some library wall? Perhaps it will go straight in the trash? Who knows? Ultimately the cities bureaucratic elites have decided to piss on the free speech of the peasants of Keene. “Get back in line. Pay your taxes. And stop causing a ruckus. We know best.”
It always catches me by surprise when a public official continues to express belief in an incorrect analysis of law. Yesterday afternoon in Keene, a chalk artist was approached by a bailiff who exited the front doors of the court to issue a pseudo-order to stop chalking. Classifying the chalking as ‘disorderly conduct’, a vague legal term to which chalking does not apply, the authority figure retreated when questioned about his statements and suggested that he would contact Keene police. A KPD SUV rolled by, and another officer walked past the chalking and into the courthouse, but no further action was taken. And, the chalking remained over 24 hours later!
I suppose this was simply an incident in which one bailiff had an incorrect interpretation of the rights of people to express themselves. It was respectable to see the issue dropped once the false information was corrected. One longs for a day when chalking itself does not cause such an elevation of the emotions for bystanders and authority figures.

To what institutions in society does the jumping scenario present an analogous interpretation? Is Samuel L. Jackson’s role that of an enforcer, an elder, a spiritual leader, or a tyrant? Should jumping ever be prohibited by law? Was Vincent Vega truly responsible for the incident which traumatically affected the character Marvin in Pulp Fiction? Unanswered questions about how jumping effects the lives of so many are approached with answers in this unforgettable review of Anakin and Mace Windu’s much anticipated rematch.
