and one from bill

i received the following in the mail from a fellow bubblehead that i worked with for years at mare island. he is a constant source of humor. but this time, he forwarded some seriously bad and ugly news. his letter:

I will warn you guys...I seriously cried when I saw this...read first, and only open if you have a fairly strong stomach.

A friend sent this photo of a horrible highway accident in Germany. The picture may be kind of hard to take for some of you. If you look closely you can see what appears to be some survivors of the accident still in the wreckage. Although the picture is horrible, it makes you realize how quickly our loved ones can be taken from us.

and then he included a picture. it was horrifying. and in the interest of keeping this blog above the minimum threshold for acceptable viewing, i will only provide a link to those morbid enough to want to see.

Seriously, a more strenuous warning might be in order... I screamed when I saw that horror...

That is the worst case of alcohol abuse I have ever seen.

Only the German word "Götterdämmerung" does justice to this scene of misery and woe!

I can't stand it. That's horrible!

At least you gave us fair warning of the carnage.

I'd be far more upset had it been decent beer.

Clearly a great tragedy. However as hard as Grolsch is to open, it may be the only way to get to the beer.

Bo, to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again I suggest the HY-80 carrying case. See link here

It was in Holland...not Germany! But you Americans don't know the difference between them, I think. This is real typical Dutch beer, Grolsch. It happened in my neighbourhood.

unfortunately true about americans being generally clueless about european geography. but... i'm just passing on the bad news as received!
and this happened near you? i'd think a day of national mourning would be in order.
oh, and welcome to my blog. glad you stopped by.
