((Every time I read about Carrie Nation I can't stop laughing.
Maybe it’s the hilarious overkill involved in using a hatchet to smash up saloons, calling herself a “bulldog running at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn’t like,” greeting bartenders by saying “Good morning, destroyer of mens’ souls,” and screaming, “Men, I have come to save you from your drunkards’ fate!” Or maybe it’s the fact that she had her name “Carry A. Nation” registered as a trademark in the state of Kansas. Or the fact that she got banned for life from Kansas City, Missouri for literally crashing several parties.
And maybe the fact that she kiiiinda reminds me of my mother. :P
I was gonna do an actual post on her today, but then I remembered that no one really likes her. haha. But she was kind of a badass.
I feel like she and John Brown are the two Kansans that will forever haunt Missouri’s dreams.))
