Why are so many Democrat women so ugly??

From Grits for Breakfast: Deputy seeks sex offender dick pics

A Wise County Sheriff’s officer was arrested Friday morning for improper photography related to sex offenders who had been jailed. Sgt. Chad Hightower was charged with improper photography or visual recording. He posted $25,000 bond and was released. The investigation began from a complaint by a man who was registering as a sex offender. According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Hightower told the man a new state law required him to take photos of offenders in the nude. The complainant was photographed naked twice, the second time in an office at the county’s impound yard. The investigation revealed nude photos of other men as well, according to the affidavit. Look for a full story in the weekend Wise County Messenger.

Author Charles "Chuck" Bowden died at home over Labor Day weekend. He was a great author of nonfiction books and articles in magazines like Harpers and Atlantic Monthly. His special area of interest was U.S.-Mexico relations, the border, and the 'war on drugs.' He was a courageous man, who went into Mexico, including Ciudad Juarez, after it became deadly for any journalist. He was hard to miss, at about 6'3, so it's not like he could blend in with the locals.

He wrote the best book I know of about the corruption and violence in Mexico, Down by the River: Drugs, Money, Murder and Family. He also wrote Sicario, based on hours of interviews with a cartel enforcer/killer, and Shadow in the City, about an undercover narcotics cop. I think he loved the people of Mexico and wanted to witness the hell that country has become.

I got to know Chuck after I moved to Kerrville and began corresponding with him about the corruption in the Hill Country. He was interested enough he stopped on his way from New Mexico to Austin one time to meet me. I've had a couple of articles published that got a good bit of notoriety, and he was kind enough to review them and make suggestions that made them better articles.
