I was just reading an account in the paper about another tout of Northwest Arkansas by one of the paid cheerleaders at Walton U., a story that included the safety of the region as a prime selling point.

Oh, yeah?

Says here that two young women in Rogers have been attacked in recent days by darts, the kind fired from blow guns.

It's a jungle out there.
