  • Stop. Just stop - and breathe

    After deep and serious thought, I think I have a solution for all the world’s major problems:
    Everybody stop.
    Just stop. Take a breath. Step back. Chill out.
    Protesters, go ahead and protest, but you don’t have to riot, so put down your bricks and rocks. Stop looting. Stop damaging people’s property. Stop shouting obscenities -- and clean up your litter on the streets.

If the referendum passed, the fiscal court in each county would decide whether to continue electing constables.
