Like Father, Like Son I Guess

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Josh Hancock died recently in an auto accident. He rear-ended a tow truck that was stopped in the lane of the road to assist a disabled vehicle. He was driving drunk (almost twice the legal limit), talking on a cell phone, not wearing a seat belt, speeding, and there was pot found in the wreckage of his SUV.

Now his father is suing. First, the bar that served his son alcohol, even though he's been described as a "regular" there. Also named in the lawsuit is the tow truck company and driver, because they should've been professional enough to have already have moved the disabled vehicle out of the roadway. While he's at it, he's suing the driver of the disabled vehicle for failing to maintain it well enough to keep it from breaking down. The vehicle that stalled had spun out after being cut off by another car, barely avoiding an earlier accident.

It's obvious that the dead kid had inherited his father's rotten judgement. I wonder if he was a clueless asshole with a victim-complex too?

We've got two dogs, and just one is heavier than the other, so we feed them at separate times in different rooms.

The earliest memories I've of cars is my Father had a Hudson whilst I do not think it absolutely was a Hornet . I might say a 1948 or 49 4 doorway dark colored and using a light colored interior . It absolutely was already the mid 50s and he replaced it that has a early 50s Buick Road Master he bought from my uncle as he experienced just purchased the residence we grew up in .br /Years later I would learn that Hudson was State in the Art for that time and his was also Expensive as he bought it new . Also the Hornets had Pretty a Racing Legacy .

Because some of his experiments are dangerous, he didn't want to take responsibility if someone got killed or injured because replicating his experiment on youtube.
