We practically watched live, kinda sorta, as a killer tornado(s) ripped apart a school yesterday and killed children in Alabama. Then a few more people here in Georgia. Then I was shaken-up out of perfectly lovely sex-on-the-beach scenario (that was just a dream, just a dream) by yet another overhead, aerial clusterfuck from all the chopper action due to this horrible, catastrophic scene. (No, I am not going to rush out the door to go get the ghoul footage, although the scene is literally right down the street. That's what local news is for.)

Who needs a freakin' TV show? Jack Bauer can only dream about the level of death and destruction you can pack into a 24-hour time frame down south. And don't get me started on the Kappa Kappa Gimme All Your Money tarts up there in Acworth.

Jeezus Christ. I gotta get outta this town.

UPDATE: They say the driver of the bus that fell onto I-75 was "confused" by the lane situation and exits on Northside Drive and I-75. I've driven back and forth on this particular bridge for years; the signage and the lane situations STILL confuse me. Every single time. So imagine trying to navigate our DOT nightmare for the first time. People have now died trying.

Is it not funny how the most dangerous intersections and traffic confusion zones are left untouched, not even discussed, because there is more clamor and glamour in building annexes on the downtown civic center or developing riverfront properties?

The street and city works department has been fucking around with an intersection near my home for over 4 years now. It's all tore up and in shambles. Businesses have closed. Traffic is dangerous. Forget about trying to be a pedestrian in that area. Better grow some wings.

Now, with wikis, we can collaborate and Totally Bypass Government.

Glad you're okay after all those storms.
