    Sad story out of Houston - Cyclist killed by hit and run driver

    http://www.khou.com/news/local/HCSO-...137955063.html

    Terrible story..be careful out there!
    Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. but it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. It's whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.

    I was hit by a hit and run driver a couple years ago. Makes me feel blessed when I think how lucky I was.

    Terrible story



    but...

    I did LOL at this:
    "Deputies said the suspect became combative and verbally threatened officers when they woke him up, so they were forced to Tase him. The suspect became cooperative after that."

    Don't know if all states are the same, but here loaning your vehicle to
    a drunk is the same as driving while drunk. You own the vehicle you
    are responsible for the use of it no matter who is driving.

    A terrible waste of life!
