Trooper's addition to the Arkansas State staff under new coach Blake Anderson has brought a jolt of energy to the staff, school, and fans, but the community of Jonesboro is also seeing a bump in business.  The Jonesboro pre-paid cell phone market has seen a tremendous spike in the last 12 hours, as local merchants are reporting that their supplies of the phones are nearly exhausted (limousine rental companies are also expected to see a boost in business). So when Trooper runs for office of some kind in 5 years (WHAT A DAY THAT WILL BE), he can legitimately say, "Trooper Taylor:  Good for Business", then towel-wave his way into the voting booth and into office. And while Arkansas State welcomes its new assistant coach, we can finally blow out the last candle for the Trooper Taylor vigil and turn off Sarah McLachlan's "Angel", which has been playing on a loop since December 2012. Spend all your time waiting for that second chance for a break that would make it okay there's always some reason to feel not good enough and it's hard at the end of the day I need some distraction oh beautiful release memories seep from my veins let me be empty and weightless and maybe I'll find some peace tonight In the arms of the angel fly away from here from this dark cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear you are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie you're in the arms of the angel may you find some comfort here
