I see the article had been edited to take out the statement that 2 people died. As frequently happens, whoever wrote it doesn't check facts and just makes stuff up. information.


Ok. So two dead and nobody bothers to notice.

Say it ain’t so Bako.

What a sad commentary for the state of law in America today. Reminds me when I was a mayor of a major Midwest town back in days gone by. Yup. Yup. Yup. Things got nastier than a dirt devil in an open sewer. I mean gnarly. So I fired everyone and moved to Bako. Reserving judgement.
