Massachusetts Family Lost In Corn Maze Calls 911
By Chad Love
Who says the average American has lost that trail-blazing, pioneering spirit of rugged individualism and self-reliance that made this country great?
From this story in the Washington Post:
Authorities in Massachusetts say a family that got lost in a seven-acre corn maze called 911 for help, apparently taking advantage of the police department’s motto that says “We Want To Be Bothered.” The maze at Connors Farm in Danvers can take up to an hour to navigate. A police officer entered the maze with a farm manager to search for the disoriented father, mother and two children. The family didn’t realize they had almost made their way out and were just 25 feet from the street.
Yep, regular Natty Bumppos we are...
