Still waiting for the money, and the Feed

So this is what Limbo feels like… Seriously we have a sum that is almost equal to our annual income after taxes sitting in my bank account, with almost nothing to eat in the house, and we can’t get to the money to buy groceries. If I wasn’t brain damaged I would be a raving maniac. Seriously, this is just so aggravating, and there is nothing I can do about it. If I ever had any money that I could just “spend” any time I wanted then not having access to this money might make me a bit more agitated than I am now, but since I’m only familiar with the concept of “disposable income” in the abstract sense, the fact I have money I can’t spend just means I still don’t have any money, status quo. I’m trying to come up with something I can slap together for the pot luck at the Full Moon ritual tomorrow, and all I can come up with is we have brown rice and Spam…

Up first the driver that killed a cyclist by pushing him into the path of a commuter train was driving basically blind (as well as without a license and as an illegal immigrant). Driver charged in fatal crash involving FrontRunner train in Provo The driver was trying to get around with only a tiny peephole cleared in front of her, and just did not see the cyclist waiting at the crossing. I’m still trying to figure out how an illegal immigrant could get such a late-model Escalade, one of those costs more than my house. There was nothing the cyclist could have done to avoid this wreck as he had stopped for the train to cross, the only thing that could prevent this would be preventing people who don’t have a license from getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.

Closure in a wreck in IN. Elkhart court hands down 18-year sentence for cyclist deaths The cyclists were hit from behind at a high rate of speed with virtually no chance of avoiding the wreck, this sentence is the best thing that could be done to prevent a similar wreck in the future.

Expect more about both these wrecks in tomorrow’s blog post. I know I call it Wreck-Free Sunday, and there will be nothing about the wrecks in specific.
