You might know Steve Mosley several different ways.
- His mother, Jean Bell Mosley, was a local author. He showed up in the background of a photo I took of her in 1967.
- He was a member of Central High School Class of 1962.
- He retired from teaching high school social studies in 2010.
- In 2004, The Missourian ran a story where Steve proclaimed himself the “King of Speakout,” because he said he had more than 18,000 Speakout comments published in the last 20 years.
- If you are one of his 4,719 Facebook friends, you’ll know him for his daily poll of current events designed to whip his fans on the left and right into a name-calling frenzy.
The lime green throne
He makes frequent reference to the “lime green throne” he occupies on a daily basis at Cape’s Public Library. He was distressed one day to see it occupied by a non-Mosley. On another, he posted a picture of his wife sitting on the throne and claimed he had been “overthrown.”
I took Mother into the library when I was back home so she could get some real help learning how to load library books onto her iPad. That’s when I spotted Steve on The Throne.
Steve counted on his trusty bodyguard in the background and a strong force field generator in the foreground to protect him and his throne, but he never realized just how vulnerable he was.
Had this been a real coup instead of a drill, there would have been a new seat on the throne.
