5. Another link with a bit more detail

U.S. Senator and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, R-Nev., was taken to the emergency room at University Medical Center in Las Vegas Friday afternoon following a traffic accident.

Nevada Highway Patrol said his caravan was involved in a six-car accident about 1 p.m. on northbound Interstate 15 at Sahara Avenue. Four of the cars were with Reid's caravan.

There was no immediate word on injuries.

Earlier in the day, Reid delievered the keynote address at the dedication of the National Atomic Testing Museum.

14. Because whenever public agencies

ranging from your local PD, to in this case the Secret Service, are involved in an accident, they tend to settle and settle quick... also SS vehicles are up armored, which means the damage to civilian vehicles will be well above and beyond whatever would happen if it was just an accident with another vehicle.

It is kind of a way to avoid the embarrassment of lawsuits. Of course settling means, you, as MR. Joe citizen, give up your right to sue.

21. The up armored part for VIP packages like

the Majority Leader (line of presidential succession and all that jazz) or the rest of it?

You can research it. Not widely published, but you can find it. Serious.

It is not that difficult to find actually.

Now the ones that you know and hear about is where people actually sue police departments... but there are far more accidents in a year than those well known lawsuits.

16. Meaning they are keeping him over for observation

Could be VIP medicine (the worst kind) or just a precaution... up armored vehicles are lousy at absorbing damage.

22. Is the tinfoil hat a tad too tight?

Accidents do happen you know. If you have ever had the misfortune of seeing fast moving motorcades for VIPs, it will make sense why there are accidents from time to time.
