Back in 1996 or 1997, when I was working at a newspaper in N.C., the state decided it would publish the list of top 10 deadbeat dads (most unpaid child support), you know, to name and shame them into paying up.

Crowd cheering for him the whole way, he easily dusted park security, clambered over the Read more
