To Hunt or Be Hunted
Easter is behind us now but the fallout is still prevalent. The candy is still around and even some hidden eggs are still out there if you really want to search. What a great community we live in. There were several Easter Egg hunts held in the Y101 listening area. Hannibal hid over 8000 eggs at the Hannibal LaGrange University Campus. Quincy had several spots including Washington Park and Flinn Stadium and there were others in smaller communities like Loraine, Illinois. Of course, the intent is for all of the children to have fun gathering the hidden eggs. It has nothing to do with the parents or does it? We are so fortunate that people around this area understand that these kind of events are for the kids and not them. Unfortunately, reports are coming in from Easter Egg Hunts around the country where things got nasty. In Macon, Georgia, an annual Easter Egg Hunt had to be cancelled after parents became violent with each other in trying to collect eggs for their kids. I read one this morning on Y101 where in Memphis, Tennessee this guy got mad at this woman for helping her kids find the "golden egg" which had money in it. The argument intensified and the guy slapped the woman twice. She got mad and left to get a hammer and hit the guy on the head with it. He's in the hospital and both were charged with disorderly conduct and assault. Oh, by the way, the "golden egg" had a whopping $7 in it. Are we hunting for eggs or each other?
