    I drove from Guntown into Tupelo this morning, using 145/Gloster and found all the traffic signals inoperative. While taking that bit of information in, I also noticed that in the entire drive, not one cop did I see. Nowhere.
    Where were all the badge-wearing, gun-toting, steroid abusing public servants?

      Probably helping other members of the rude, ungrateful, lazy, pothead, hate-on-cops-until-they-need-them public, seeing as power was out all over the county.
