Let's see if I have this straight: Crime was running rampant in Indianapolis, but the members of the Marion County Sheriff's Department didn't really care; I dunno, maybe they were too busy eating donuts or sleeping in their cars. Then the Indianapolis Star did a hard-hitting expose revealing that robberies were up 18 percent. The sheriff then realized the jig was up -- "Gadzooks, the newspaper is onto us!" -- and immediately arrested nine suspects thought to be responsible for 30 robberies. The newspaper editor went home and slept snugly, pleased that once again journalism had saved the city.
God, we can be insufferable. How do you people put up with us?
