I have that car. The gear shift is on the wheel. I found it very confusing at first and in that situation, she probably panicked and forgot. You have to push the stick down to go forward and up
to reverse. It is confusing at first and if she was not used to the car, I can see how this might have happened. View Comment
I wish there was some kind of safety switch that would be activated if there is weight on the crossing tracks. My passenger airbag has something like that embedded in the seat. If only there could be something similar that would activate a brake on the track when a certain amount of weight presses on the rail. Realize it wouldn't be easy but something like that might work.

Glad to hear that they are also ticketing cars that follow too closely. I think this is a form of intimidation to us safe drivers who are following the speed limits. A pick-up truck followed me so closely today that I thought he was going to climb up my trunk. Scary. View Comment
His silence speaks volumes. If someone accused you of doing something this horrible, wouldn't you stand up and scream "I did not do this"? I think that's what an innocent person would do. Why has he not denied these accusations? View Comment
I hope with all my heart that the good people of Tarrytown who actually attend this disgusting sham of a show, refrain from giving the man a standing ovation as they did in Florida. But then, that was Florida. View Comment
Tawana Brawley? You've got to be kidding. How can you compare that one misguided young woman to the (I believe it is now 16) women who have come forward.
I do not believe that Mr. Cosby will have a full audience because I think there are people, a lot smarter than you, who will not condone his actions and will not patronize his show. Thank goodness for that.
Your comment that "rape would be wasteful of energy" is beneath contempt. View Comment
And conversely, would she make up such a story and leave herself open to criticism from people like you for a $20 parking fine?
This, my friends, is why Bill Cosby has gotten away with his antics for 20+ years and why women are loathe to tell what happens to them.
I hope you don't think I'm attacking you but if that's your opinion, I'm afraid you deserve it!
This is just so tragic. This handsome young man with his whole life ahead of him, gone in an instant and in unbelievable pain. I can only imagine what his family is going through. My sympathies to them. RIP. View Comment
I am sorry for all the people who looked upon their church and their priest as home and family. What will happen to them? What if they cannot drive to the new church?
Why is this happening again? View Comment
Yes, I didn't see a ticket for using his cellphone while driving. I thought that would be listed there, too.
Just heard that Rick Scott has pulled ahead in the governor's race in Florida, so yes, Flori-duh seems appropriate. View Comment
Just got a notice from the IRS that I owe an additional $242.15 on my 2010 taxes. It's actually $187.00 but they are charging me interest of $55.15. As I had no idea that I had underpaid on my 2010 taxes until I received this notice, four years later, the interest charges seem a bit mean.
Surely these billionaires wouldn't miss this little bit of money - it's probably less than what you might find in their couch cushions - but for me, it's a lot. I wonder if one of them could advance me this amount until my next social security check comes in. It would certainly help this 75 year old, recent widow a lot!
(I wonder if they got one of these notices, too) View Comment
