Be afraid, be very afraid

Citizens For Safe Neighborhoods,
the group pushing the sales tax for the County Jail, is taking a page from the Bush playbook, judging by the cover, shown here, and other pages in a new mailer. Scare crap out of everyone. As Bush would be more credible if Iraq actually had WMD, this appeal would be more credible if a football team's allotment of jail bunks weren't devoted to desperadoes who stand charged with being waiters at the Country Club of Little Rock while holding improper work documents. Yes, we still endorse the tax. Criminals are going free because the jail needs money to staff more beds.
