Are we seeing a possible insurrection in Kansas? Is it the beginning of Planet Of The Apes? All I know is the chimps have escaped from the Kansas City Zoo and who knows where they are headed.

At Huffington Post here is what they are saying and it isn't much:

Chimpanzees broke out of their enclosures at Kansas City Zoo, and the area is on lockdown as officials try to track down the escapees.
I think those chimps have been paying attention to the goings on in Topeka and they are going to set things straight. here, here, here (ad infinitum it would seem)

So it is sixty miles from Kansas City to Topeka--how long will it take for the chimps to make it? I read it is 1 hour in current traffic but can they drive? As I recall from the Kansas landscape I don't think there are a lot of trees to swing from in between. So as for public transportation they can take the train, the bus or fly--well I don't think they have the ID for flying. And they will probably have to stop off at TJ Maxx or someplace else for some appropriate outfits. All I can say is I am rooting for them. If Planet Of The Apes begins in the Kansas State Legislature it will be an improvement over what is there now.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
