Other news about 'Tracy'

Yet another installment of the news that fills my inbox about "Tracy" that isn't related to Tank Town.

Today's best "Hey, that's not my Tracy" moment:

In Tracy City, Tennessee, you don't have to be alive to be elected mayor.

According to The Associated Press, Carl Geary defeated the incumbent mayor by a score of 268 to 85, even though "his death had been widely reported," as it seemed the candidate passed "a few weeks" before the vote was cast.

Just further proof that, in politics, higher brain function is not a prerequisite.

This is the perfect set up for poltical comment on Tracy, California, but I refuse to bite.
