    Crime Spree in Des Moines!

    I know Jeff Bower is from the Des Moines area, so I know there are some good people out there, but man, they've sure got some hardcore criminals, too:

    Stole $4.00 worth of ribs, turned off the AC and TV, and used the toilet? You only learn to do things like that after serving hard time in the Big House.

    Don't you live right close to a big house & the inmates first stop is your house where they shut off the A/C & TV use the toilet & steal the ribs. This I'm sure explains your knowledge of the situation.

    Vaughn, your head should work just fine for that.

    So it seems we had a slow news day yesterday here in Des Moines...I'm suprised they didn't mention if I...umm I mean...ummm...the suspect, flushed.
