AUDIO WARNING:  The first song by Django Rheinhardt was blown.  Run your voume dial after the introduction, everything is okay.

The Neosho River runs from Emporia southerly in a wiggly winding route all the way to the John Redmond Reservoir, north of Burlington, then on to LeRoy, over the Neosho Falls, to Iola and beyond. 

State Rep. Bill Otto has ran up and down the Neosho River for more than two decades, as a student, public school teacher and on the city council of LeRoy, Ks.  Since 2005 he has served in the House of the Kansas legislature, sometimes in controversy, many times in opposition to the dominant parties, both Democratic and Republican.

Bill has never been part of a specialized class of people, like most people along the Neosho he is plain spoken and of the common people.  Otto is the essence of the democratic aspirations of the people, warts and all.

Unlike his bosses in the Republican Party he does not seek to manufacture consent among the governed, but reflects on and presents the opinions of his constiuents.

Tonight we'll take an audio enhanced boat ride along the Neosho River with Rep. Bill Otto to discuss the present "revolution in the corn field" as spawned along the Kaw by once Sen. now Gov. Sam Brownback and his budget cutting conspirators.

Tell your friends about this controversial, but thoughtful person.  This August 7, the Republican primaries will be held for the 76th District that Bill Otto is in, running against foreign interlopers and incumbents; Peggy Mast and William "Willie" Prescott, both heavily under the influences of the Wichita billionaire Koch brothers and big shots in the  Kansas Chamber of Commerce.
