On my way to the holiday weekend festivities yesterday, lookie what I saw. I was, like, 50 feet away when I heard this glass shatter impact, turned to watch, and witnessed the wildest NASCAR like wipeout. The BMW mussa been going 100mph because traffic was moving along at around 50. Anyway, the cab jumped Lake Shore Drive and hit the infield and spun toward the bike/running path. I could see people watching it barreling out of control right for them, and a one guy moving in slow motion as he tried to dodge it. The dude in the BMW was talking, the cab driver was walking around. No pedestrian was injured. :PHEW:)

this picture was taken just minutes before the crash

Meh, America is going down the tubes along with the UK.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Happy 4th July to all the Americans here  :)

Wow that really was a real smash you saw up tthere in Chicago Babble  :scared: glad to hear nobody was hurt though.

Oh and it was the best thing we ever did getting rid of that part of land, as we can now enjoy 'real' foreign holidays now  :)~

lol  When I think about the knuckleheads we have in office across this great land today, I wax poetically about how truly grand our founding fathers were and the principles this country was founded on. Then it occurs to me that they were no better than the hypocrites we elect today.  :rofl_2:

Speaking of founding fathers, I started watching a few episodes of the HBO miniseries "John Adams". It was so great! I watched one episode after the other. But I had to get to sleep so I missed the last 3 episodes. Paul Giamatti played Adams just how you imagine him to be. And he and Abigail had a loving relationship. I loved them :) Can't wait to see the last 3 episodes. :))

Abigale is played by Laura Linnie, one of my faves! John Adams was a lunatic, for certain. Someday I hope you can see 1776 the musical. It goes into John and Abby's relationship and the slave trade and all the compromising. It's fun, highly entertaining, and educational even if not 100% accurate--but it's close!
