“I used to talk and write about wanting to leave a mark on this world. Boldly. Loudly. With exclamation points and large fonts and pounding fists. That’s what I wanted to do. To leave a mark. To leave my mark.” ~ Urban Samurai

Arizona’s long national nightmare is, at long last, ending, as the Cyber Ninjas this week pack up their spinning tables, their 5G cameras and their ultraviolet lights and leave town.
Well, at least, the first act is over.
The result of the now-infamous Maricopa County election audit is not in question. Those who believe last year’s election was stolen will glom onto the inevitable ninja conclusion that something nefarious was afoot. Those who don’t will dismiss the findings, one eye roll at a time.
But the impact of this audit? That’s likely going to leave a mark well into the future of our beloved state.
