    Prison is a step up for the boy. Henderson has nothing going for it. It is the only town that people are standing around the streets all day with nothing to do. At least he will be able to play pasketball all day in prison and get 3 meals a day for free.

    The area code is wrong. It should be 252-438-4141 or 252-492-1925. Henderson's area code is 252.

    Of course everyone notices the pattern you're hinting at. Its only not apparent to people who refuse to address the problem within the families of the focus group you're hinting at. (Is that vague enough?)

    does anyone else notice a pattern?
