Harper County, Kansas

Harper County is a county located in the U. S. state of Kansas. As of the 2010 census, the county population was 6,034, its county seat and most populous city is Anthony. The county was named for Sergeant Marion Harper of the 2nd Kansas Cavalry, who died of wounds suffered near Waldron, Arkansas, in December 1863. For many millennia, the Great Plains of North America was inhabited by nomadic Native Americans. From the 16th century to 18th century, the Kingdom of France claimed ownership of large parts of North America. In 1762, after the French and Indian War, France secretly ceded New France to Spain, per the Treaty of Fontainebleau. In 1802, Spain returned most of the land to France. In 1803, most of the land for modern day Kansas was acquired by the United States from France as part of the 828,000 square mile Louisiana Purchase for 2.83 cents per acre. In 1854, the Kansas Territory was organized in 1861 Kansas became the 34th U. S. state. In 1867, Harper County was established; the original organization of Harper County was one of the largest frauds in county government.

In 1873, a group of three men organized Harper County, designating the fictitious city of "Bluff City" as the county seat. The petition for organization used several names out of a Cincinnati city directory to represent as residents of Harper County. In 1874, the state attorney general investigated, found not a single resident of the county; the "founders" of the county had sold $40,000 worth of bonds. Harper County was settled starting in 1877, the county was organized for a second time in 1878 by the Glenn and Robinson families. Since Bluff City could not be shown to have existed, Anthony was designated as the temporary county seat. In an election in 1879, Anthony won as county seat though 2,960 votes were cast in a county with 800 legal voters. Due to new and high-paying jobs at area oil fields and wind farms, Harper County experienced an economic boom. However, by 2016, the oil fracking boom had played out and the economies of Harper and adjacent counties suffered under the impact. Earthquakes, due to induced seismicity from injection wells, had substantially reduced in frequency and intensity, thanks to a Kansas Corporation Commission order mandating cutbacks in volumes and pressures.

SandRidge Energy, which along with Chesapeake Energy was one of the two major producers in Harper county, appealed the order, but soon went into bankruptcy. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 803 square miles, of which 801 square miles is land and 1.5 square miles is water.

May Thirtieth Movement Monument

The May Thirtieth Movement Monument is an outdoor sculpture and memorial commemorating to the May Thirtieth movement, installed at People's Park in Shanghai, China. The steel sculpture was installed just south of Nanjing Road in the 1990s, it depicts a flame and the two characters for 五 and 卅. Behind the sculpture is a bas relief explaining, in Chinese, the events that took place in 1925. In 2008, Shanghaiist wrote, "we wouldn't recommend it; the city's homeless population fails to grasp the monument's historical richness and instead tend to use its relative seclusion to take a piss on their shared heritage. But, in the spirit of the monument, it's kind of fitting the way underclasses are making their voices heard. Power to the people, right on."

Elaine jokingly declares; the manager gets in an argument with the busboy and fires him. Elaine and George fear their remarks may have caused the firing. George and Kramer visit the busboy's ramshackle apartment to apologize, much to George's discomfort. Things get only worse when they accidentally leave the door open, letting his cat out, his lamp gets broken. A few days the busboy comes to Jerry's apartment see George, terrified that he will hurt him. Instead, Antonio tells him that there was a gas line explosion at the restaurant that killed five employees, including the busboy hired to replace him. Moreover, his search for his cat was both successful and led him to stumble upon a better paying job.

He thanks George for getting him a better job. Elaine faces having her boyfriend Ed stay with her for a week. Irritated by the live-in situation, she puts him onto a plane back to Seattle, only to oversleep and on the way to JFK International Airport encounter a five-car pileup on Rockaway Blvd. With her boyfriend still with her, he gets into a shouting match and a fistfight in the hallway of Jerry's apartment building with Antonio, resulting in injuries on both ends after they fall down several flights of stairs; the busboy loses his new job, George is forced to take care of his cat, Elaine's boyfriend is bedridden at her apartment for several more weeks. This episode was noted by the supporting cast in an interview used for a DVD set as the first sign that Jerry would be a generous writer, being good about including the co-stars into simultaneous story lines. Jerry himself does not have a lead role in either of the episode's plots. Larry David credits this episode as the first time; this episode was filmed in October 1990 with "The Pony Remark" and "The Ex-Girlfriend".

In this episode, George claims to know the best public toilets anywhere in Manhattan. In the seventh season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry has written the reunion so that George has parlayed this knowledge into an iPhone app called "iToilet" which the fictionalized version of Jerry would describe as "An iPhone application that leads you via your GPS to the nearest acceptable toilet wherever you are in the world". "La puerta esta abierta", a line the busboy uses, may have been taken from Sesame Street. At 12.5 million viewers, this episode had the fewest viewers for any Seinfeld episode in its original airing. David Sims of The A. V. Club gave the episode a C+. "The Busboy" on IMDb "The Busboy" at TV.com
