Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Video: Bus driver fired after crash while texting | "A Texas bus driver has lost his job, after causing a crash because he was texting on his cell phone, while driving.

Security video from inside the San Antonio public transportation bus shows traffic stopped on the highway in June of 2008, as the bus barrels toward cars at a standstill."

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

I saw this on CNN this morning. Unbelievable. The guy had no clue ... he wasn't even on the brake. Bada-boom, bada-bing (with a couple of handicapped people inside).

Made me drink an extra cup of coffee before I headed off to the gym for squat/DL day ... and reading Bill's Bogart novel (which is great) between sets. Bogie nailed some goon in the nuts this morning. His lines are GREAT.

My wife, also known as the Principessa Ann Marie, the cappo di tutti capi, freckles and the all important "dear" has a new moniker born of Bill's "We'll Always Have Murder" ... "Junior" I call her ... and she still calls me fatso.

So it goes.

I saw one report that had the woman in the SUV watching the tape and cringing anew as her car got crunched.

Any truth to the rumor (I just made up) that the last message he sent said, "Ramming Speed!"?

Didn't think so.
