There is no excuse for over-driving your sight-line stopping distance.

Re: “Farmers Riled Over Decision to Charge Bull's Owner in Fatal Crash

Many many years ago I thought there was a law if a bull was over 1 year old they could not go out to pasture. Is this true I don't know if you find out let me know I believe it is.

Re: “Trial and Error: What Went Wrong in the McAllister Case

Fred - it doesn't seem unreasonable for a prosecutor to decline to base a case on the testimony of an accuser who has been granted immunity to the consequences of lying during that same testimony. When that is disclosed to the jury, how can the jury have faith in the accuracy of that testimony beyond reasonable doubt?

Re: “Trial and Error: What Went Wrong in the McAllister Case

It's somewhat disguised but it's the "haves" against the "have-nots". The Senator is represented by two well compensated private attorneys. The interest of the "victims" is represented by a States Attorney elected by the same electorate represented by McAllister. How is it that this trial was allowed to go forth in Franklin County? Was it tried in Franklin County so that the outcome could be more easily controlled? The fact that the outcome was caused by the actions of the Deputy States Attorney is outrageous. The immunity sought by counsel for the "victim" should have been granted; not having done so represents abuse of power and authority on the part of the States Attorney. Most unfortunate.
