The folks in Omena, Michigan have the right idea: the town of 280 inhabitants recently held a mayoral election, and all the candidates were animals. Not surprising to anyone who understands that cats are the superior species, Sweet Tart, a gorgeous tortoiseshell cat, won. Sweet Tart will reign until 2021, assisted by First Vice Mayor Diablo Shapiro the Dog, Second Vice Mayor Punkin Anderson-Harden the Dog, Press Secretary Harley Jones the Goat, and Special Assistant for Fowl Issues Penny Labriola the Chicken. Read more about the feline Mayor on People.com. (The People writer erroneously calls Sweet Tart a calico.)
