I’m sincerely hoping this becomes the signature issue of the governor’s race:
GOP Sen. Neal Kedzie of Elkhorn has introduced a bill on behalf of 9-year-old blues guitar prodigy Tallan Latz.Latz’s father, Carl, went to Kedzie last year after the state questioned the legality of Tallan’s performances at festivals and bars where alcohol is served.Kedzie wants to allow children to perform — with a parent present — in a dance hall, night club, tavern or similar place before 9 p.m. on school nights or before 10 p.m. other nights. And only for musical or theatrical performances.
Good for Kedzie to assure the vote of the father. However, those guitar skills might take that kid far, far away from Elkhorn by the he’s old enough to vote. Maybe Kedzie can take him on the campaign trail next year. Remember Pappy O’Daniel’s campaign in O Brother Where Art Thou?
