Saw a study maybe 10 years ago that said Cops were most often
seriously hurt on family disturbance calls. I don't recall for sure,
but I think they were also the most often office fatality call.

Les, I live in Shreveport and I am very happy here. My mother, my sister
and my brother live nearby and I enjoy being close to my family. You and
Jarrod are welcome to visit any time.
You could visit a Unitarian Church and see if it is right for you. It
is a wonderful church for children, because they are educated on world
religions. If you visit Shreveport, you are welcome to go with us.
