I hate to say this, but I feel a bit more comfortable about my state. Then again I do not live in the interesting part of it. I only live in Southwestern Idaho, and boy nothing happens there and it is a fucking desert. I'd prefer the Eastern and Nothern parts of Idaho. The only good thing is that things like that do not happen as much as far as I know.
Then again the News seems to exaggerate stuff like that, or put bad rep. on another state due to stereotyping, so while I may not know what it is like, you have my empathies ShrowdedPoet for the shit that goes on there at times that makes Arkansas feel like a bad place to those who do not see the picture.
