    The heat must be getting to people. It seems like there have been a lot of shootings this week.

    Seems like more and more people are going off the deep end and taking innocents with them.

    yep...the heat is just bringing the AHoles nature to the forefront. I had a road raging nutter on me 2 days ago. I had been behind him and was trying to get his attention(flashed my headlights and pointed to his tailgate) to let him know he lost a rather expensive chainsaw from the back of his truck when he made the last turn. He hopped out of the truck and came running back to me screaming more profanities and flying arms and redfaced at the next stop light until I explained the finer points in life. I calmly explained to him through the cracked window that he had lost his chainsaw and his angered face turned to an "oh crap" face and he pulled an illegal u-turn headed back to look for it. No apology. No other words, just an illegal U-turn and left.

    This is just about 15 miles from my home. Just goes to show it doesn't matter whether it is a birthday party or any other seemingly innocent event (such as buying a cheeseburger, morons in California!) you just never know.

    closer to what you meant?
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.
