    No, that's Northwest Arkansas.

    The largest-growing area in the country!

    I felt really bad for him in that infomercial. You know, he was a '70s stud on his CHiPs bike, and here he has to ride, cough cough, a real bike through the natural beauty of Hot Springs, Arkansas. Such a sad image.

    Hot Springs, New Mexico, changed its name to Truth or Consequences.

    Hot Springs, AR, should change its name to Truth or Dare.

    Now that's funny. I'd move there just for that.

    The job looks intriguing. If I wasn't in love with where I am now, I'd consider a move. Arkansas lovin's gotta be good, right?

    You don't have to worry about those pesky teeth on the women.

    Plus, the city's called "Mountain Home." How perfectly relaxing and hometownish does that sound? "Greetings from Mountain Home ... Where even strangers are residents."

    I might send a rezuhmay just for shits and giggles. I've been practicing my Pig-sooo-eeeeey! war cry the last few years.

    Um, hate to burst your bubble, but Mountain Home's a three-hour, curvy-ass, mostly two-lane road ride from Fayetteville or Little Rock or any civilized outpost, save Branson.

    That's what makes the job so intriguing.

    Where did the previous SE go? I think his name was Sonny something or other.
  12. That would be Sonny Elliott, and I'm not sure where he went. However, they've had one since then. From what I've heard, Gene McCoy was the sports editor, but he resigned to become the sports information director at Lyon College, an NAIA school in Batesville.
