From Fargo to Baghdad
The Associated Press reports that impending Minnesota National Guard deployments in the Middle East could have an unlikely consequence: diminished police presence in Fargo, North Dakota. The town is expected to lose some 10 officers in the coming months--or nearly 10 percent of its entire squad. The Fargo Police Department has an authorized force of 124 officers, and 10 of those slots are currently unfilled.
Might be a good time for Fargo residents to start working on their meth labs.
