Arkansas has lost what’s likely the most expensive pebble in the state and today historians don’t know where to begin looking for it.

    I seem to remember that the moon rock was on display during the White County Fair in Searcy sometime in the mid '70s.

    I believe I agree with kk1kk1, and I figure they should check The Hucksters pockets... since he saw fit to destroy the State owned computers to hide the best porn sites, why wouldn't he take a moon rock with him... he is, after all, one of the idiots who raised his hand when they asked the question at the debate: "Who doesn't believe in Evolution?"
    So what makes anyone believe that the giant Fattso (again) believes we went to the moon? Probably that plaque represents blasphemy and needed to be destroyed.
    They could also check ebay.
