    First, the state Democratic Party chairman was killed.

    Then the TV anchor was attacked and killed.

    Then two students were killed on a college campus.

    Now an Arkie is being held in conjunction with the skinhead plot against Obama ...


    From the most recent AP update (not yet on Web) ...

    Yeah, let Tenn. and Arkansas get into a fight about which state has more effective racists.

    I'd give it to Arkansas myself since its the world HQ of the White Nationalists. But Tennessee's a gainin'

    Frankly I think they should direct their rage (though not violence) where it really belongs, Bobby Petrino and Phil Fulmer.

    I'm just glad it wasn't Bells, Texas.

    (The only time Bells, Texas will EVER be mentioned on this board.)

    Are Mississippi and Alabama eligible for this fight? Or are they first-ballot hall of famers and thus inelegible?

    Every state has a bad run now and again. Witness Wisconsin a few years ago.

    I blame Memphis.

    Draw a 75-mile radius around that city, and you have one big toilet bowl.

    I heart Rendezvous and most of Beale Street, though.

    The fact that the guy is from Arkansas is a shock to people? The first thing I thought when I saw the plot thread was it was either Alabama, Mississippi or Arkansas

    Yeah but they don't discriminate. They'll eat anybody up there.

    No, it's a shock that such a small state has been in the national news so often for horrible things lately.

    And my first thought was "I wonder if it's some militiamen from up north." Sadly, it was two idiot Southerners.
