I just saw that first one. He was lucky'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Texas contract worker killed by tire
Here's a similar incident by us yesterday, except with a road worker - This one didn't end so good:
Texas contract worker killed by tire | AP Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
LEWISVILLE, Texas — A road crew worker is dead after a 200 pound tire came off a tanker truck and struck him.
Lewisville police Capt. Todd Taylor identified the victim as 52-year-old state contract worker J. Pedro Garcia.
The accident happened Monday when a truck carrying flammable liquid lost its first right rear wheel just after crossing the I-35 southbound bridge over Lewisville Lake.
That tire struck two vehicles. Taylor said the truck continued for about half a mile when the second wheel came off and it struck the worker who was outside of his vehicle.
An air ambulance flew Garcia to a hospital where he later died.
Manager Robert Sorenson said the truck company, Safety-Kleen, is cooperating with police during the investigation.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Wow. That's one of the reasons why I hate doing stops on the Interstate. Well okay I never actually considered such a thing happening, but you get my meaning. Boy that was something else.

Talk about seeing your life flash before your eyes. That was a little bit too close for comfort there. I'll bet the pucker factor was off the scale on that one. I hope some truck mechanic caught hell for this. Aren't commercial drivers supposed to check their rigs to prevent something like this from happening?
Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.
