Quote of the Day - Andy Griffith certainly didn't need a gun. By his presence, he was a reminder that we all have an obligation to follow the law. In Mayberry, that certainly did the trick. - Steven Jeffrey

Mayberry's Town Drunk Gets Competition From Lincoln, Nebraska

Not to pick on Nebraska, but do you really want to be known as the state that holds the record for criminals with the most arrests?  According to this AP article, Lincoln, Nebraska's Kevin Holder was arrested for the 226th time last Sunday, on suspicion of possessing burglary tools, a felony.  Believe it or not, that's not the record for arrests in Nebraska.  The article notes that Edward Rooks has been arrested 652 times.  It likely would have been more, but Rooks died in 2004. 

It could be worse, though.  According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the country with the most murders is India, with 37,170 between 1998 and 2000 - the entire population of Woburn, Massachusetts.  Not a record to be proud of.  If you're looking for more information, you can check the United States' Bureau of Justice Statistics.  Or, you could just go to Vegas, where things happen, but don't apparently stay there.

Perhaps the only other character who has been arrested more times is Mayberry's town drunk, the fictional Otis Campbell
