In a recent email from my friend, Connie, from south central Nebraska told me about a bad accident between a semi and a school bus near her home.  She mentioned the school bus was from Blue Hill and since I couldn’t quite remember where it was  on the map exactly, I googled the information to find out more.  There were several stories which told me where it was and therefore I could picture it in my mind.

Unfortunately, I read the comments after one of the stories.  Now I remember why I usually avoid those.

One comment was by a female from Omaha who “assumed” this was a rural area where the accident took place.   Really?  She must have lived in Omaha for all of 5 minutes.  She doesn’t know that 98% of Nebraska is rural??  Yikes.

Another extolled how dangerous semi-trailor trucks were and recommended that all goods be delivered by train, that we ban trucks.  What?  Was she (another female) serious?  She wasn’t kidding?  A reply was to ask her if her grocery store was located right next to a train track.  Was she going to the train station to shop?  Good grief, she obviously knows nothing about how goods and services get delivered to us.

How lame can some people be?    These dummies live among us.  And half of them are female.  Sometimes I do despair.
