First Person Report: Joplin

We drove right past Joplin a couple of weeks ago.

Now? Practically speaking, Joplin is no more.

PJMedia posts a first-person report from a Kansas-based reporter. It is gut-wrenching.

I watched a house burn, as frustrated firefighters stood by helplessly — they had trucks and hoses, but no water.

As I was walking away from the fire I saw a couple walk up. They said they thought it was their neighbor’s house on fire. As I told them it was gone and the firefighters had no water, the woman’s hands suddenly flew to her mouth as she wailed: “Oh, my God that’s our home.”

Doubtful. Tim Rock is exceptionally racist. His mother told me that at the bar one night.
