Des Moines is not known as a violent city.

do happen to good people — to widowed grandmothers,

to a 61-year-old high school custodian.
The caucuses: Sweater vests and pigs. By the

Sweater vests. “Thanks to Rick Santorum,
sweater vests rebounded nicely after
the May resignation of The Ohio State
University football coach Tim Tressel,”
a caucus-goer reports. Read
and cowgirls from all over the globe
will make their way to Wells Fargo Arena
this weekend to witness some of the
roughest and toughest rodeo athletes
shine during the World’s Toughest Rodeo.
