Ah, Belleville, IL, the town that brought us the modern alt-country movement with songs like "Graveyard Shift," "d. boon," and a magnificent cover of the Louvin' Brothers' "Atomic Power." A town neighboring Uncle Tupelo's birthplace puked up a bit of funny news today some Granite City cops spotted a man lying naked from the waist down in his pickup and he proceeded to flee, ramming one of their cars and eventually leading them into a muddy, boggy place where everyone got mired down and the authorities managed to get a handle on the wang-waggling miscreant. Ah, Southern Illinois.
