  1. Is it just me or does everyone else feel like the world has just gone plain crazy?!?

  2. Hopefully this idiot will be punished severly. We were there with a loaded semi and had to detour around. This cost us time and dollars–for what? I can only imagine what it cost the law enforcement!! He should have to reimburse the department for all expenses–and be in a mental institution forever.
