    Vehicular attempted murder.

    We have to put an end to those automatic transmission, especially in the hands of the average person. How could any decent minded person allow another to own, possess or drive an automatic transmission automobile. can you imgaine just how many poor people could be mowed down. Today it was 13. Thankfully with no deaths but many injuries. Tomorrow it could be considerably more and multiple deaths.
    We have to put a stop to those cars with automatic transmission and return to the manual transmission driven cars.

    That's right. Could you imagine how many people could be saved if we banned cars. But then only the politicians and criminals would own them.

    If cars were designed to kill people they would look very different. If guns were designed to kill people they look, well, exactly like they do.

    He was probably a communist spy looking for Kerry.

    I take it your point is that there was a good chance of a better outcome here if this guy had had easy access to an AK-47.

    I respectfully disagree.

    In strife, unhappiness, lonliness, and hopelessness yet resides a glimmer of humanity.

    I've been at the end of my rope, to the point of a knife blade, but that minute semblence of human nature pulled me back.

    Do something nice for a total stranger once a month. Just 12 times a year. A smile, a nod, a simple hello.

    You never know when the simplest of platitudes could pull someone from the brink.
