    could not make the connection.  I'm not from Kansas and would not know the Governor's home address if I saw it.

    This article: Gov. Sebelius’ son’s board game is about prison life appeared in the Kansas City Star on Jan. 22.  (Look out MajorFlaw - it opens in a fresh window.)

    The son, John, may well have moved everything after it became an issue.

    As I comments to several others, I did not know that Gov. Sebelius had endorsed Obama.  I did know that jokes about prison rape are not a laughing matter.

    I'll try to connect the dots reported on MSNBC but the chain may be broken now. I have found the same quote several other places but have not been able to confirm it.

      husband specifically made this comment in relation to the game, either.

      The governor's spokeswoman, Nicole Corcoran, said both parents "are very proud of their son John's creativity and talent."

      Do you know when that statement was made? Would you assume it's an endorsement of this particular game?

      Just curious to see if this has been thought through all the way.

      We have to go far, quickly."
