Bro1 and Freebird were chatting down in Homestead recently. We realized a few things. First, we have met a lot of the men and women in blue in our travels and have a great appreciation for the job that they do in protecting the community. Second, most of them are not really onboard with this frantic desire to drive away a half million tourists from the Grand Strand on the part of the mayor and city council. Third, many of them ride. Fourth, a lot of the news articles on what used to be the NEWS & VIEWS page were really about the great work done by city, county, and state police in fighting local crime. So, we decided to put the focus where it really belongs. Thus, we now present The Thin Blue Line, a little corner of our website dedicated to and in appreciation of their excellent work.
