We have a winner!

A fellow named Leon, the Sheriff of Richland County, South Carolina has conclusively won the title of World's Greatest Jackass. I'm not going to list the last name that the magazines and newspapers have been giving for him because jackasses don't have last names.

Sheriff Leon has now parlayed that picture of Michael Phelps smoking a bong into eight arrests, and he appears very willing to continue his crusade.

If someone slaps him smartly upside the head with a two by four to get his attention they would not be guilty of assault. At most they would be guilty of disorderly conduct and cruelty to animals.

People are being murdered, Congress is spending hundreds of billions, Geese are flying into the air intakes of jet planes; and half the news media in the country are spending their time on the fact that Michael Phelps went out and had a little fun after spending fifteen years of his life training and working more intensively every day than Sheriff Leon has ever worked a day in his life.

Come to think of it, hitting Sheriff Leon upside the head with a two by four would be a waste of effort. He's hopeless, entirely too stupid to pull a cart or carry a pack load. Somebody ought to walk him out back behind the barn and put him out of his misery.
