IN PRAISE OF REDNECKS: THEY MAKE THE POLICE BLOTTER INTERESTING

Who's to say rednecks don't contribute their fair share of value to society?
Monster trucks, Jerry Springer, Jerry Reed, Smokey and the Bandit, professional wrestling, interesting fare in the police blotter, the "Dancing Outlaw," the guy Brent Spiner used to play on "Night Court"(Bob Wheeler-click here)...really, that's a hell of a list right there. I'd even add mathematical genius/formerly crazed schizophrenic John Nash to that simply because he's from West Virginia, and where the hell is more redneck than Bluefield, West Virginia?

And who's to say the South has a monopoly on redneckdom? West Virginia shares a border with Pennsylvania, which may explain why two Penn State players were charged with shooting graphite arrows from a compound bow into the wall of their dormitory during a party in the "predawn hours" of Jan. 29.

You know those hunters-they get 'er done early!
