So today I read in the local newspaper that one of the guys charged in a shooting last year was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left for dead.

McFarland was scheduled to be sentenced March 25 in Clinton County District Court after pleading guilty to a charge stemming from a 2008 shooting incident at a mobile home park near DeWitt, Iowa.

My husband's father, stepmother, and two younger sisters live in DeWitt. In that mobile home park. When the shooting occurred (some guys in a car, firing into a trailer from it), his little sister Danielle was in her bedroom folding her laundry. Did I mention they live right next door, on the next lot, like thirty feet away from the trailer that was being fired into? Yeah.

Small towns in Iowa, huh?

  • 21:58 I'm raising bids on shit I don't even want/will get elsewhere for much cheaper, just so other people who outbid me will have to pay more.
