Americans obviously concerned about threat of war, decide to do something about it

Two women were arrested Saturday night for displaying sexual behavior in the shop window of Nogginz, located on the 500 block of State Street.

Officers on patrol approached the store after 2:30 a.m. when they noticed a crowd yelling and cheering in front of the window. They arrived to find 23-year-old Amy Williams, a Nogginz employee from Ionia, Mich., and Madison resident Meagan Kleinheinz, 22, engaging in sexual activity. Williams wore nothing but her pants around her ankles.

The measure's sponsor, Rep. Debbie Stafford, an Aurora Republican, choked back tears when she told of a serviceman headed to Kuwait who asked her for a flag.

She also talked about her stomach "turning" when she received an e-mail from an "unpatriotic" local high school teacher who said he wouldn't post the plaque in his classroom.

To paraphrase that SBS ad, the world is a fucked up place.
