In Your Neighborhood

Sex Offender Notification
Two of these Sex Offender Notification cards arrived at the offices of RRBJ in one week. They contain information and a photo of the offenders. Perhaps one of the most disturbing aspects of the mailings could be found under the Safety Tips section: "Maintain current ID, including photograph, video and fingerprints of your children."

Through the Caddo Parish Sheriff's office you can type in an address and find out what sex offenders live near you. Within a one mile area of the RRBJ offices 26 folks popped up on our screen. On the same site you can even sign up for their email alert program.

I always wanted to prank someone by photoshopping their name and face onto one of those cards, I bet they would think it was funny.

While I think that is a good idea for a skit on a comedy show, I'm not so sure it would translate well into real life. Now if it was someone I hated...

I really wish they'd send out "Congratulations! Someone really cool has moved down the street. Be on the look out for perfumer-fiber artist-beer maker-fig grower-art car designer-perfusionist."

Ya know, it's all fine and good, I suppose, but I'd much rather know when a thief or killer moves in and they don't require that.

I think it would be funny, especially if you tape one to their door
