4. Wasn't his wife and daughter hit, before too?

 

That seems odd. Whoever drives his car needs to be checked out for alcohol and drugs, if it is the same one that put his wife and daughter in the hospital. Or they need to figure out who is trying to run the man over and why.

8. Awesome news.

Thank goodness. If you'd like to express your appreciation for his valiant public service, you can do so on his Web site http://www.reid.senate.gov/contact/index.cfm

You can say something as simple as you're pleased he is alright.

I'm sure he'd appreciate your kind thoughts.

11. Where the F## is the F##ing Nevada Highway Patrol Report.

 

I don't give a sh## about the local yokel reports other than WTF happened. Motorcades with only State Troopers on a major Interstate don't regularly create massive traffic accidents...unless they are going in excess of 100 MPH. There were reportedly 6 vehicles...4 with Speaker Reid and 2 Nevada HWP.

We are not talking downtown LA, the Mojave Desert or Las Vegas here, as I understand it.
