Just the culture of the

Just the culture of the 'hood. Not really noteworthy. They need to arm all the Hahn residents and encircle the camp ... I mean the project with barbed wire. After 12 hours the survivors should be bused to Cherry Crossing for a competetion between the "projects of felons." Any survivors will move on to the next "hostile project" round and continue the competetion of killing their fellow felons, until they reach the Grand Finale.

Let's hope Richmond County can calm down. We've had too many murders. One is too many, but I lost count this year.

So much for 2008, 2009 is here. I wish everyone a Happy and prosperous New Year. May God be with you. After all he died on the Cross to save us all. Prayerfully he will fit into this President Elect life somewhere. I don't think we've seen anything yet. It's the beginning of the end. Read and interpret the book of Revelations. Also read John 3 16. The only way to Heaven is to turn right and go straight.
