......In August, a Yalobusha County woman was caught attempting to sell a child in exchange for $2,000 and a vehicle. Because there currently is no state law forbidding the sale of children, local authorities could only charge the woman with child neglect........

Uh...I....


live....

in......


Mississippi.


We have, uh.....really good sweet tea. It's....it's not so bad.



But seriously, this article amazes me....

Yeah....I live here too. The sweet tea is awesome (you can get it ANYWHERE!)
Unfortunately, that's about all we have going for us lately.
