Which just shows what kind of hypocritical bullcrap all of this is about. Yep, gotta be liberal and spout off about this or that injustice. But when push comes to shove, it's all about the almighty dollar.

And any normal adult would know that. Heck, a ten-year-old child would know that. Stupid is as stupid does, I'm afraid.

Granted, Microsoft sure as hell isn't known for its ethics, and Boeing likewise isn't known (recently, at least) for its good management, but you truly are NOT making any sense here.

It could be age. It could be prison sentence.

I suppose I should now avoid Sam's club, as you've indicated here that your employer is apparently (and shockingly) underfinanced.

I fear it's because the dumb don't get common sense. Dumb raises dumb, and that's the simple truth of the tragic, and avoidable, situation.

I'd say it's a safe bet that Israel is populated with mostly Israelis.

I have seen stupid in my day, but this about takes the cake. Virtually all of the above comments are valid . . . to those who have a modicum of common sense, at least. Suing Caterpillar? My ass! Talk about serious exploitation. And that term, "activist" . . . should that now be synonymous with "brain-dead"?

This person was seriously deficient in common sense, and she paid for it. Given the actions taken by her relatives, I'd say such deficiency runs in the family. Now they're trying to get society to pay for the dumb acts of their ilk. I say they should shove it all.

The "shcetch" (how do you pronounce that, incidentally?) or sketch resembles an ugly woman having a bad hair day. Catch WHATEVER IT IS soon.

You're certainly right. There's no use "hoping" this event will act as a deterrent to others speeding. If such "deterrents" worked, this tragedy wouldn't have happened. There have been more local speed-related fatality cases than I can count in the past twelve months alone. And in today's totally connected, gotta-take-a-phone-and-the-Internet-with-me-everywhere-I-go society, there's no excuse for missing this stuff when it hits the news.

There is one thing that I remember from my school driving course days: The "Restrainer Trainer." It was a big ramp upon which a person slid down and came to an abrupt five-MPH stop, all designed to get one thinking about using a seat belt. The message stuck with me, and I've worn my belt since. Speeding can be confronted in the same manner. Not all teenagers are so naive that they believe they're invincible. A couple of convincing demonstrations can make the difference.
