I heard many people remark on TV that Michael Jackson thinks and has the mind of a young child, moreover, a boy who talks like he never thinks of sex. Don't be small-minded or stupid enough to think he can't get sexually aroused. After all, he has three children and I'm sure wasn't impotent with his wives. He doesn't cater to young boys for nothing; he's hoping they won't tell for all the goodies bestowed upon them. How many irresponsible and dumb parents does he think would let their 10- to 15-year-old sons sleep in the bed? Never think Michael Jackson is sexless.

It looks like a bumper crop of cotton is being harvested in and around Sikeston this year. Approximately how many bales of cotton per acre are being harvested this year? With tens of thousands of acres of land in the hands of single families, with the taxpayers subsidizing cotton to the tune of 26 per pound of cotton, who's the biggest welfare recipient?

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture office in New Madrid. The 2000 cotton crop yielded 694 pounds per acre; 846 pounds in 2001; 780-790 in 2002; and the 2003 yield is estimated to reach 900-1,000 pounds per acre.

I subscribe to the paper and called Thursday and let them know I didn't receive my Wednesday (free) paper. Then I called on Friday because I still hadn't received my paper. I hope I get it next Wednesday. It's pretty sad when you pay for your paper and don't receive it.
