This week's Poll
What is the answer to Blytheville's crime problem?
 We need to devote as much money as possible to hiring police officers.
 Focus on better training for the officers we have.
 This city needs some serious gun control - too many people have guns.
 More law-abiding citizens should be properly armed.
 It all starts in the home - parents need to invest more time and effort into their kids.
 We need more school and city-sponsored programs to offer our kids better opportunities.

Next time I'll dig up some worms...
A couple of weeks ago, I fell victim to basically every bleeding-heart-woman cliche and attempted to rescue a baby bird. I mean, I would hope that there are men out there in the world somewhere who would go out of their way to try and ease the suffering of an obviously dying baby bird, but I'm pretty sure I haven't met one.
