Thanks I just posted some comments about the speeders who cry because they have to do 25MPH in our sub where all the little kids play. They all drive at the minimum 50 and then from 12Am on all night its race time. As my buddy did once when his kid was hit by a teen who used to race the neighborhood. Nothing a bowling ball and the rear axle didn't solve after he hit the kid and still didn't learn his lesson.

Man, that really makes me nuts when people do that.
:cursing:

Not as nuts as my friend Dave in Texas, though. A young guy who always drove way too fast was speeding through their neighborhood and hit Dave's dog and just kept going.

Dave yelled at him to stop and the guy jumped out and copped attitude with him. He thought he was gonna teach somebody a lesson, because Dave is short, pudgy, mild, and has the sweetest little face you could imagine.
Dave is also a Marine who did three tours of Vietnam (mostly Search and Destroy) and has killed a lot of bad guys, with guns, knives, and his bare hands.

Dave's wife looked out, saw the dog, the guy, and Dave walking down the street saying in his calm mild little voice, "You stay right there."
She starts yelling, "Go! Go, go GO! Get in your truck! Oh, God, please RUN!!!"

Fortunately the guy realized what was fixin' to happen and high-tailed it out of there just before Dave got his hands on him.

That won't bring back their beloved pet, but there's one big jacked up Ford that does 15 mph through the neighborhood now.

...No offense to you guys, but keep the rugrats out of the middle of the street. Me and my neighbors were just discussing this.....cars parked along side the road, and then some 5yr old girl wobbling along on her bike she learned to ride a week ago.....and I gotta get home. What if she tips over? I run over her, and probably go to jail, no to mention kill some kid. I have no idea what the legalities are for kids playing in streets....perhaps it is legal. I'd assume not, that is what sidewalks are for. Parents are like dog owners...they think everyone thinks their kid is as cute and precious as they do, I hate to say but a lot don't. I may move to a retirement community just so there aren't anymore kids in the middle of the street.

....On that note, you've GOT to read this. It is 19 pages long. That's right, 19 pages. You won't be able to stop reading. This is from the newspaper in Nashville, over the people of a city petitioning to oust their Mayor. Starting after page 3, it lists all of his alledged-offenses. Anyone that lives in the South is going to love reading this, trust me, it is worth the time. They should make a movie about this guy,
