Clinton's Arkansas

I live in a state where violent crime has increased 95 percent over the past 10 years. Maybe it's because our per capita spending on police protection ranks 50th in the nation. The crime problem in our state really hits home with me. I have been a victim of both armed robbery and rape in the past 10 years. Neither criminal was caught.

As a wife, a mother, and a taxpayer, I'm concerned about our state and the future of our nation. You see, for the past 10 years our governor has been Bill Clinton. If you think you'd like Mr. Clinton to lead America, try living under his leadership in Arkansas. Patty Roberts, Little Rock, Ark.
