Do you really believe this distinction will matter? It's a major nascar driver and his behavior in question. Public perception of the sport will hurt nascar not spr...

I think everyone takes a black eye. NASCAR looks clueless with how they began it's PR response. It will get worse as time goes on. TS will forever be seen as a murderer by a not so insignificant number of people. It's not like this is a case where something like DNA evidence comes along proving i...

It's just fodder for paranoids and fabulists. ...

I'm speaking in generalities. Many back roads simply are not safe to drive 55 in every type of vehicle.
Anything scientific to back that up with?
It was not my point to say that particular road is substandard.

If, and this is an if, the above statement concerning the driver is true, the accident may be caused in part by a defect in the road or drainage.

Overall, I feel like they lack quite a bit. The $2000 bottles of scotch seem gimmicky when you can't find something like bread crumbs to go with the four pack artichokes.
IMO, Costco is better than Sam's, but I was hoping for more selection and more of the high end goods it seems everyone rave...
