A Name to Remember…

The 2010s will go down in Kansas history as a lost decade. Ordinary people are being pushed backwards in real income and quality of life–we have deteriorating highways, declining educational systems, an unraveling safety net, falling competency of government administration, declining participation in public life, declining honesty and rationality in civic discourse. I’ve been thinking about names for this unhappy time, parallel to the Bleeding Kansas era. The Brownstained Barony? The Kansas Kochian Katastrophe? The Sunflower Slump?
Are there any other suggestions?
