All right, Salina! You’re killing me here! So, this is the building I can best identify as the equivalent of the county courthouse. The District Court and County Clerk are both based out of here. I guess this is what I’m looking for. Of course, across the street is the Saline County senior center…
Really, guys? Why turn the old courthouse into a senior center? If it isn’t suitable for the business of the county, how is it suitable for seniors? I mean, wouldn’t you want something more modern, with easy access and without multiple floors, if you’re going to have people who might be prone to falling? I get turning it into a museum, but this doesn’t seem like the wisest course of action. Of course, those more youthful than I might quip that the “senior center” still serves the same function.

On a certain level, you’re right. It’s nice to get things done while everyone is sleeping and can’t see what I’m doing. On another level, sometimes weird stuff happens at night… That said, when I eventually do Mississippi, I’m NOT rolling at night. I intend to be in a hotel room safe by 9PM every night.
