Jan 8th 2013 4:45PM Several years ago I had occasion to travel to Houston where I rented a car. I've driven in Los Angeles, but I consider that a picnic compared to driving in Houston. I was caught up in 70 mile per hour traffic, literally bumper to bumper. I've never been more terrified in my life, and thankfully I haven't had to drive through that nightmare of a city again.
Aug 11th 2008 6:20PM As distasteful as Russia's intervention is, remember it was Georgia who began the war with an attack on innocent people that killed hundreds or thousands. From our side, it would be like Cuba attacking Puerto Rico; do you think we would settle for just kicking the Cubans out of PR? I don't think so. The Russians are responding in a like manner. Remember, they consider the people of South Ossetia to be Russians.
