A college town in the conservative, bible-thumping, gun wielding Delta region of Northeast Arkansas. Located roughly 80 miles west of Memphis, Tennessee. Also known as Jonesboring and Jonesboogie, Rockansas. Made the news in the last decade or so for the "Jonesboro Witch Burnings" and a school shooting.
Jonesboro is a crappy place to live unless you are a right-wing, Southern baptist.
