My Namesake

July 10th, 2008 1 comment

I noticed that I was seeing a lot more traffic to my blog today. I couldn’t figure out what would cause that. I am used to getting search results for “Matt Jones” (even though there are some millions of us out there!), but today I was seeing more. Then I noticed that many of the search terms had “arrested” in there as well.


It turns out one of my namesakes, who plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was arrested early today on a felony drug charge.

Thanks Matt, I appreciate the press. If only I could somehow capitalize on it… nah.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Independence Day celebration! And remember that our freedom isn’t free; this is a day to be thankful for all the rights we have been given!

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
