From what I've read, sounds like Ms Malloy was a wonderful teacher, person & friend to all who knew her. To the Malloy family, so sorry for your loss. Hope this Rosen creep suffers for what he did to your loved one. Prayers for Vinnie, not sounding like good news for him either. I will pray for his recovery. More drunken scum poisoning our streets & killing & mauling innocents.

Then you and your parents are in violation of the Terms of Service. 5th Grade makes you no older than 11, unless you are a complete moron and on the extended elementary school program.

Good news, boys and girls...

Monday will be a substitute teacher.

A word of advice: loke miserable and cry a lot. To the braver kids- cut yourselves. The school board will likely give you kids a week or two off from school.

The victim in this whole debacle is the poor drugged driver. By drugged driver, I can onlt assume that means the driver was slipped some chemical that impaired his/her judgment.

Throw into the mix two joggers, whom I'm sure were not wearing reflective tape, probably out at either dawn or twilight (yeah, I have no interest in the article- but I know I'm right), and I'm sure these two runners didn't get out of the way (one jogger will get out of the way if I go driving right at it, two assume there's power in numbers and remain standoffishly in my path).

The result. A hearty splat, a rolled jogger, and a sub on Monday.

how many more accidents like this before they crack down on the amount of pain killers givin out by these so called doctors! Pain management centers to me are the same as crack houses! There are more people addicted to pain killers in this country then any other drugs combined. I'd bet anything the pills this kid had were vicodins from his parents medicine cabinet. The kids now a days call them "Chicklets".

An estimated 7 million dosage units were diverted in 1994 and over 11 million in 1997.
In 1998 there were over 56 million new prescriptions written for hydrocodone products like Vicodin and by 2000 there were over 89 million.
From 1990 the average consumption nationwide has increased by 300%. In the same period there has been a 500% increase in the number of Emergency Department visits attributed to Vicodin abuse with 19,221 visits estimated in 2000.
