    I appreciate that you posted this...it was the matter of some discussion in my home.
    My feeling is that this story is a litmus test to differentiate the Left from the Right.

    I believe that a Left-leaning individual would find the kind of humor in this story based on rich folks getting their comeuppance.

    While those of us on the right, holding no grudge against folks who earned their money legally, have more of a 'tsk-tsk' attitude.

    My first thought about the accident- in which no one was seriously injured- was John Donne's line..."therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee."

    Wadda ya' think?

    Heh.

    I went on a "Dream Cars" tour where you got to drive very much the same cars seen in that pile up.

    Wonder if that was the same thing?

    Robin Williams said that coccaine was God's way of telling you you are making too much money.

    Same principle applied here.

    I'm gonna assume that your post lends credence to my thesis.

    Oh my.

    Really?

    It's in my blood, I guess. I am the son of a race car driver.
