During our last election, there was a loud cry for an independent third candidate as an alternative to the entrenched positions of Democrats and Republicans. Such a candidate has arrived in the form of Meece the Mouse, who is seeking executive office in Kip Cosson's new children's book Meece for Mayor of New York City. The lighthearted tale follows Meece, whose slogan is ''A Vote for Meece Is a Vote for Peace,'' as he explores the democratic process and what it means to be the head man (mouse?) in America's biggest city. Cosson reads from Meece for Mayor at 3 p.m.
