seems like a light sentence for armed bank robbery.

It is February 1st! This was headline news almost a week ago! Why is it still the lead story in my subject line? No wonder they want to close some Patch sites down. Who wants to read last week's news and see the same bunch of people insulting each other on the side! I have more luck reading the S. Times to keep current on local events. At least they don't have the "children who can't play nicely" fighting in print. They have editors who control the level of foolishness that gets published and that the rest of us are tired reading about. Sorry the Patch is just a sinking ship that I am no longer going to board. We had a large fire in town etc. But Danny F. is still looking at me from the home page.
