I like how his "wife" acts like a grieving widow when they were divorcing and she is living with another man. I feel for those kids and todd's family. My prayers are with them. His wife needs to grow up.

I'm sure his wife has some feelings for him. That's understandable. They were a couple once, after all. That kind of stuff doesn't go completely away, even if the relationship fails.

I don't know the names of all the Ohio River boats but I'm just guessing that the "Ganis R Brewer" was pushing a barge and the reporter didn't bother to learn that if a vessel has a name,it's probably a boat that pushes barges around and if it has letters and numbers like "OR3142" it's probably a barge that carries cargo and gets pushed around.
So much for getting all the facts.

Numbers are all you are. They dont care if you die or get hurt. it's like horse racing, if you get hurt they will find a way to get rid of you. A horse with a broken leg they will get rid of. When you get hurt your a libality.
