LJWJohn, what good does a cold steel barrel do? How big is the barrel? 55 gallons? 30 gallons? 1 gallon? Is a cold steel barrel similar to carving someone's heart out with a spoon?

Was the guy looking for the Wakarusa Festival?

Don't worry, the guy had purchased plenty of drug tax stamps earlier that day so he'll be just fine.

Levi, one of Douglas County's two drug-SNIFFING dogs, helped Kansas Highway Patrol troopers find "several plastic bags containing large amounts of green vegetation"-

SNIFFING....To bad the dog didnt get into some of that white stuff or I believe it would have felt a whole lot better about itself. I think these dogs have alot more fun than what everybody knows about.
