That pedophile had it coming (studies show that most people read the headlines without actually reading the story).

Why does everything have to be so dramatic?

Now this is more realistic.... I wouldn't have read the article if it said Rio Drive instead of mountains!

Truly tragic article but I thought it was a miracle.

I recall years ago, a story of a woman who went driving in her convertible in the Los Angeles area -- ahhhh -- topless in more ways than one. :200:

Eventually she proved to be such an utter distraction to other drivers, that she caused a multi-car pile-up. The next day, the headline was:

"Bares 2; Rams 5"

I don't know if it is a true story, but I sure hope it is. :138:

I didn't see anything on Drive BC about the Coq - maybe the connector?

So if you have absolutely no information...why is this even a story?

My Wife just stopped and said "you weren't even listening were you?"

I thought to myself, that's a weird way to start a conversation.
