    Did you send the warning to the city so they can advise the general population of "another disturbing event"...????

    now if we could just get live feed of the drags (similar to what bangshift.com does for some events) then all would be perfect....

    My heart goes out to all of those Joplin Folks. My Mother was Born there in 1903,
    Her maiden name was Gipson. I know I have a lot of shirt-tail relatives there.
    Wish I could be there.

    Another request for pictures and video...........LOTS !!!! I'm fast approaching the average age that the american male lives. If I dont make the drags before this life is over I'll have HRLC take my ashes out to Bonneville and the drags and spread them as she sees fit. I can just see it now...........her waving goodby as she reaches for the flush handle at a gas stop.:cool::D
