Topeka is being investigated as a contributing factor.

And to the guy in the Jetta, nice shot. Very sporting letting her "almost reached the sidewalk" before nailing her. I'm so slow anymore I can't let them get much beyond the center stripe.

"...outside Harbor Lights..."

So, Harbor Lights was associated with these people, or that's just the point along the street where it happened? I seem to remember several establishments in that area.

How anyone can incorporate Topeka into this discussion is beyond me. Topeka is like that old joke "Guess what? Chicken butt" joke now. Old, and not funny, and completely irrelevant.

I don't see where the motorist was given a citation...glad to see it actually. Many moons ago a friend of mine was drving down 11th (it was closing time and raining) and two guys ran out in front of her. She slammed on her brakes, but hit one of them. He was perfectly fine while his other drunk friend exclaimed "dude! you just got hit by a car! SWEET!" They also wouldn't let her call the cops because he was underage and didn't want to get an MIP. Then he asked her out on a date!!!

They claimed they thought she was back at the 11th and kentucky light when they decided they could make it across the street...they must have been plastered because she had turned right onto 11th a block closer to them than Kentucky!

Anyone else see the irony in this one?

"..... computer equipment from her residence in the 600 block of Gateway Court ...... "

I was just down town on business (at 9th and Mass.) and three young men stepped out into traffic against the signal and I had to slow abruptly to avoid hitting them. At first they glared, then looked at the light and saw that I clearly had the right of way and their expressions changed to apologetic waves.

Cars are bigger...avoid them.

Nope, Topeka and Chicken Butt are both still funny.

Ramirez, I thought maybe your goofy comments on Ostertag were an abberation, but now I see your judgment is impaired across the board.
