    Just another Saturday night in wholesome Central PA. Impressive. Were they wearing seat belts or helmets?

      The helmet thing was a double-reference to my comments in the biker killed in Windsor Twp. story and to this driver's off-road racing adventure. So, yes, I am not serious.

      Seat belt was because I commented in the biker story about always mentioning helmets in a biker wreck story and not always mentioning seat belts in vehicle wrecks.

      I agree. Who cares about drunk losers who can't fess up and deal with when they are caught and just make it worse.

    To continue on my high-horse, why are we plastered with pics of people who are arrested but we get a story about a missing child or specific wanted person without pics? Who cares what someone looks like after they are arrested. We need the pics of the missing child or a wanted person. If those pics are not offered to the media, they should do that investigative thing and get one or more. Telling us they were blonde and wearing a red shirt and blue jeans doesn't do much when a huge number of people wear that and people can easily change clothes, lose the hat, etc.
