Regarding Bob Tarozzi's response to David Follett's letter in spreading the blame for the traffic control at Laguna Seca events - SPOT ON.
This situation out of MotoGP has been going on since 2008 (when they started directing motos out Barlow Canyon versus through East Garrison) and was bound to happen sooner or later.
CHP spokesman Lehman said u-turns on Reservation Road are allowed so the rider of the Yamaha wasn't tdoing anything illegal (just extremely dangerous ).
At any rate, Laguna Seca, MotoGP/AMA, and the CHP need to rethink how they route traffic - not only BIKES, but AUTOS.
Gill Campbell and local CHP need to come up with a better solution for routing traffic during these events. Barlow Canyon "aka Watkins Gate" is NOT an ideal spot for the flow of exiting motorcyclists.
Why not open up the gate by York School and allow bikers to exit via South Boundary Road? Why not post MORE CHP officers around these exits rather than the hoards stationed on overpasses looking to give out speeding tickets?

Sherri, I would like to have been at the funeral but had to work. Far as the public officials go, I doubt they care.
Gabe Kish is ranting and raving again. Please. Get some help.

The news said this was a private service. Were they invited?

My understanding is it was a private service. The Monterey City Council adjourned its meeting last week with a moment of silence in honor of Lee, I think this was a nice gesture.

I went to the funeral. I did not see an officer in uniform ( although I did see two E7s). That to me is more egregious.
I heard at the funeral that the family had asked for privacy at the gravesite. So I too went back to work.
Rest in peace, Specialist Lee.

"Gabe Kish is ranting and raving again. Please. Get some help."
What else would you expect from the "Peace" Coalition type?
There's no enemy of the U.S. that they aren't enamored with.
