On the front page of the Southern Illinoisan (local newspaper) Tuesday (election day) this was the topic:
"Why did the chicken cross the road? To get away from the Cops."
"Out of control rooster arrested by police after multiple complaints."
It continued with a story about how police arrested a rooster for allegedly "running around like a chicken with its head cut off". They have incarcerated the rooster at the local police station while they attempt to find it's owner.
SERIOUSLY!!! Is this for real? It was election day...AND this is the kind of news that we are reporting. Crazy. I guess this just proves that there is just not a whole lot going on in good ole SO IL!
