HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -This indeed is no laughing matter...texting and driving is very dangerous. I am a walker and I constantly almost get run over by...you guessed it...texters...which is ahead of the plain Jane cell phone talker.
A college student from Texas believes he is lucky to be alive after a terrible crash. He was texting and driving when his truck flew off of a cliff.
Chance Bothe's truck plunged off of a bridge and into a ravine. One of the last things he typed indicated what almost happened to him.
He wrote, "I need to quit texting, because I could die in a car accident."

“Over the last ten years, these losses have amounted to a staggering $833.8 million,” said Rep.John Mica, R-Fla., in a statement previewing a House hearing today. “It costs passengers $9.50 to buy a cheeseburger on Amtrak, but the cost to taxpayers is $16.15. Riders pay $2.00 for a Pepsi, but each of these sodas costs the U.S. Treasury $3.40.”The Federal Government people!...The same bunch of idiots that some of you want to turn your healthcare over to...
Amtrak President Joe Boardman tried encourage House investigators by telling them that last year's losses represent an improvement over previous yearsThis is political speak for...'We still really really SUCK...but we're doing better with taxpayers money'...
Alaska’s driving under the influence law applies to people operating motor vehicles, water craft and airplanes. The vast majority of charges are for terrestrial motor vehicles.
But when Alaska State Troopers received a report of a “heavily intoxicated” man floating down the Chena River near the Parks Highway bridge at 6:40 p.m. Sunday, a wildlife trooper boat responded and arrested 32-year-old William Modene.
“Modene had been floating on the river for the day and consuming alcoholic beverages the entire time,” troopers wrote in their “daily dispatches” log on their website.
At 0.313, Modene’s breath-alcohol content was almost four times the legal limit for operating a vehicle, 0.08.

"It's true that I'm going to be -- what am I going to be?" President Obama at a campaign event in Orlando today. "I'm going to be 51 on Saturday. 51."
"Michelle says I look 50. So, that's not bad," Obama said, poking fun at himself.

"Now, if I'd known you guys were going to sing we would of had a cake," Obama said. "And then I would've blown out the candle, I would've made a wish, that probably would of had to do with electoral votes."
