|I got a picture of the Grim Peeper!|
It seems that as we werk harder on houses and businesses other important jobs fall through the cracks. The radio station was unmanned this morning. Rolph and Jacques spent a long time talking about flatulence and the situation with the mint (and the lack of cash) as well as the situation with the trading post manager (for full details on this please read today's paper). Eventually a DJ kicked Rolph and Jacques off air.
Rolph asked the newspaper editor if he could write some kind of exposé about the happenings in town. The newspaper editor seemed agreeable to this and then disappeared to build her house for the rest of the day. The result of her actions was not what she had anticipated!
Many homesteaders elected to stay at the farm during swimming today to make more progress on their homes. Some went swimming that really ought to have stayed behind.

Chris was not very impressed at losing the secretary, he decided to try to get back at Manbat and TARZAN with his next order of business. "The mint is doing a horrible job, we need change [meaning mackenzies], I believe we fire the mint." (See details about the bad job at the mint in the paper) Chris then left the meeting to bring back the former secretary and any other townspeeps he could get to rally with him in firing the mint workers. At this time Manbat tried some diversion tactics, "Didn't you say we had to discuss the trespassing law?"
"That was before you fired the secretary," replied Chris. A motion was made to fire the mint workers. Manbat, "If you paused the meeting I can too." Manbat and TARZAN left the meeting to find votes to save their jobs. Looking for yes votes for the mint is REAL hard. Meeting is suddenly popular! Manbat, "Did you hear Chris or me getting seconded by Mr.Adams that we recessed the meeting? If you fire us workers you will have no money!"
The motion passes and the mint workers are fired. "We will hide the money and the stamps to print more- We WILL make it corrupt! We can reconsider this decision tomorrow at the selectpeep meeting!"
Manbat turns to everyone who is working in the peeploft, "ATTENTION everyone: You now have no more money!"
The meeting tried to move on to the trespassing law but TARZAN was having a lot of trouble understanding what was being said. With no secretary, there was no one to read back the wording of the law (because no one was writing it down). The meeting tried to recess and failed. The discussion was tabled and the meeting recessed again with success.
Shortly after this meeting the FED Times Semi-Weekly was printed and in the hands of all of the homesteaders. The first action was by the editor of the Peep Times Semi-Weekly. She stormed up to the peeploft to try to stop the presses because they were printing the wrong name on her paper! The next action was the trading post employees getting organized (sort of) and going on strike. Hoping to be paid. A lot.
Tmon decided to make himself manager of the mint and hired back TARZAN and Manbat. They got to work shortly thereafter so Tmon must be an effective manager. Much more so than the FED, the selectpeeps, or the banker!
Our day was so close to the end, but the trading post manager didn't want to lose all of her workers and she didn't want to lose the support of so many friends, so she divided the entire trading post bank account balance (some 6941 emmetts) between all of her workers and had over 700 emmetts directly deposited into each of the workers bank accounts. It will be very interesting to see what happens tomorrow!
