You should know that my reservation in Hell was made long, long ago. That being said, this may get me upgraded, or downgraded as it were...
This is how a story was eked out to me on NPR very early this morning. I wasn't paying complete attention, but heard the gist of it.
"A flatbed truck was hit by a freight train yesterday in Texas.
The truck was operating as a float in a parade.
The float was carrying 20 Wounded Warriors when it was hit."
See? It sounds sick as I'm writing it, but I'm just twisted enough that I had to suppress an inappropriate grin as I realized what had happened.
I'm sorry for everyone involved, but COME ON.
[Before everyone starts yelling at me, I've supported Wounded Warriors and the USO over the years, so I'm not COMPLETELY callous. Just situationally, apparently.]
