Reader: Phillip Greaves for sheriff!
Phillip Ray Greaves II, the 47-year-old Pueblo author of The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-lover's Code of Conduct, sent a copy to the wrong person: a Florida sheriff's deputy, a sale that will have him in a Florida court today on charges of distributing obscene material.
Reports of the bust prompted this comment from solar satellite:
Polk County would do better to make Greaves Sheriff. The place is in a time-warp, lost sometime between Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Era. The influx of new blood (of stray Disneyworld tourists) seems not to have mitigated the kind of severe inbreeding of which Judd is an excrescence.
