No shortage of material for Kansas satirists

Titled "Teamtime in Kansas, or Your I.D., por favor," the Topeka Bar Association's recent satirical show for the Kansas Bar Association annual meeting had a lot of new material to work with, including activist Gov. Sam Brownback. Its "Brownback" summarized his to-do list for the audience: "I recently noticed a loophole in the Uniform Commercial Code, and I've instructed the secretary of state to take immediate action. We've created a whole new filing category — faith-based mechanic's liens. But there's still a lot more work to do. We still have some Democrats. We still have labor unions. And the Koch brothers still have to pay taxes."
