notes on government, sports and popular culture
.....So we're having a little porch party last when an 18-wheeler with a USA Truck
logo comes rolling down our street. My section of Wharton Street is very narrow with a sharp curve at the bottom, and I wondered aloud how the driver was going to make it. Once he reached the curve, there was backing out, either.
Curious, we kept an eye on the rig. Sure enough, we heard the sound of crunching metal and walked down the street to see what happened. There sat one neighbor's car in another neighbor's yard, about 40 feet from its original parking space on the street. The driver didn't stop, so my neighbor, already in his jammies, hopped in his car and chased the guy down........Then the police came and took stories......
