Do you know that for sure? Eight years ago, he wasn't suspected of "hurting" anyone, either.

There was not eight years of active investigation. There was no cause of death determined and the case was left open, iirc. Why an expert was not consulted earlier is a question someone probably should ask, or probably has asked. Someone in time looked at the case and saw something ... THEN it was further investigated and qualified medical examiners were consulted, and charges brought. The active…

It's time to allow more than 2 machines per establishment in Quincy. We are missing out on revenue. What's the point of a 2 machine limit, let the bar owners decide how many they want.

Just for reference, Sug Knight ran over and killed one man and injured another last night. He hit them first and then backed over them. Sug is a multi-millionaire (at least in earnings who knows if he has a dime to his name he did file for bankruptcy) and his bail was set at $2,000,000.

The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. -- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Edward Carrington, 1787.

Our government, at all levels, has forgotten the media works for the people, not for them. –Bob Gough, in a bar, 2011. 

Bob’s life has pretty much remained within a 70 mile radius of his hometown of Perry, Missouri, but he enjoys visiting  St. Louis, Columbia, Mo. and Puerto Vallarta.  

He was born in Hannibal and grew up in Perry. He traveled in the opposite direction of a man who was born in Florida, Missouri 130 years earlier and grew up in Hannibal-Samuel Langhorne Clemens.

Bob graduated Mark Twain High School in 1985 and from the University of Missouri School of Journalism in 1989. He has been in the Quincy media market since 1990 and has done nearly every job imaginably in local television, radio, newspaper and, of course, Internet. 

Bob is a strong believer in open government and his blogs and stories are a must-read for those in the Quincy media and political circles.

When he is not making someone really mad, he is married to his wife Ellen, who he also makes really mad sometimes, and they have three kids-Alex, Michelle and Scott.
