A Blog reader in Benton County responds to our call for community journalists to chronicle the passing scene. The striped mannequin appears near a sign promoting the sheriff candidacy of wildman Andy Lee. You have to be a careful observer of local happenings to get the whole tableau. Clearly, the inmate is not for Andy, whose sign is a few feet away. But the mannequin also bears a gang tatto, a subtle reference to Lee's campaign jab that the current sheriff didn't recognize a gang tatto on a suspect in a recent road rage killing.
