    Well, "Good Ole Boy", it seems the "David haters" have more brains than you do and see no connection between this arson and a drunken sheriff running into a vehicle parked in a driveway and then driving away ... there - happy now???

    Well I'm impressed, no David haters have placed negative comments here in regards to the truck burning over the weekend. I'm suprised the haters haven't wanted to blame David Harvey for this. Seem's he's been the scape-goat lately.
