It is a very good school. It would be an A school if it did not lose kids to gifted and magnet programs.
Considering the schools in the SE portion of the parish lose a lot of the highest IQs to gifted and magnet schools, the schools score pretty close to the schools in P-ville and better than th...

You get what you pay for. A walmart bike is good for about 1000 miles. If you ride 20 miles a day, that is about 2 months.
The OP should look at cyclocross or touring bikes. They are good for our roads.

Cobra would probably have taken him when he was in his 30s. It is hard to maintain that much strength at around 50, plus he only weighs around 170. The match was pretty close, in a month maybe Cobra wins.

Driving it could make it worse. Usually there will be some sort of change in the driving characteristics before total failure. I wouldn't ride around with the radio loud so you can pay attention to your truck. If it shakes or gets a lot worse rapidly, pull over.
