Half of this town should turn in their keys, nevermind the tourists.

Can't say anything for yourself without bringing down someone else? Stand up. Say what you want and what you really think. This ain't Myanmar.

Donald Rumsfeld is still looking for me because I voted for Obama. So I had to go underground and as the evil twin of nannystate brat, formerly of topix fame. But I really am pretty good with mustard and relish, or with special sauce, mustard and diced onion like teos or linden street. :-)

Wow about time, I also was almost hit by a elderaly woman backing out of her spot at walmart. I even yelled at her and she kept going. They need there sight and eyes checked every 6 months I think. to many people getting hit by old people. I know my Grandmother needs to get off the Road but the state thinks she is fine, Maybe along with the eyes and ears test they should do a drivers test too!

92 years old...and to think...they renewed his license. I was at my friends auto repair business a couple years ago, when an elderly gentleman pulled in. As I timed him , from the car to the door took 14 minutes & 35 feet distance. He asked the mechanic if he could 'make the car's ignition switch easier to turn, because he had no hand strength'. So I asked him.."just how old are you?..to which he replied "I'm a hundred and three".
So...Mike the mechanic asked the old guy if there was someone he could call for assistance...the old man indicated that he had a son and rendered the phone number. The son was over 3 hours away. So Mike called a friend from the State Police for some advice. His police friend came by & asked the old man a series of questions and performed a physical and cognition test right there in the driveway of the shop. Eventually, the son showed up, the cop explained that the old man would have to surrender his license. The bottom line...when you're too old and weak to even turn the key, then it's time to use an alternative form of transpotation.
