    Make sure you look in the white pickup tuck with the flat tire parked in the front yard and in the shed behind the house.

    My question is why are these criminals allowed to live? You libs and sissies are so against mandatory death penalty for drug crimes, why? They have nothing to offer society but crime, so eliminate them.

    To Mike: No, that's not your table. Your scales are the older model. BTW, I guess this isn't the appropriate place to ask, but....have you got anything?
