I'm sure we've all felt from time to time that our local politicians are from a different planet, right? Well, this is about a guy who decided he didn't want to live long and prosper in politics. Associated Press tells us that David Waddell used the Klingon language to write his letter of resignation from the Indian Trail (N.C.) Town Council. Waddell says he used the Star Trek TV/movie lingo as an inside joke. The mayor called the letter unprofessional. Mr. Waddell says he resigned so he could focus on launching a write-in campaign for U.S. senator on the Constitution Party platform. So I imagine North Carolina voters will see him beaming down to their cities soon. DB
