If Looks Could Kill: A Tacomic Look at Boe, Campbell, Lonergan's Rear-ending

|Hey I saw those occupy tents down next to the Washington State Historical Museum.Didn't see any of them outside (occupy Tacoma people) when I first got there (who could blame them at that time-fierce weather).The MLK event at the WSHM was wildly successful even with the fierce weather (I went there by Pierce Transit) starting at around 11:00 AM almost a blizzard,wind and very very cold too.My neighbor and his friend (whose stepfather was an actual WW2 combat Tuskegee Airman couldn't go- weather too fierce for them I guess).Some other MLK events were cancelled from what I've heard.I had an excellent time/experience there. At around 5 pm the weather wasn't bad though (wet).I have to tell you it's the first time in 10 years that I have been in downtown Tacoma (no kidding).In some ways I either miss the older DT Tacoma with the hookers/drunks/bums/dilapidated buildings or the much older Tacoma when Union Station was an actual train station where one could get a train ride say to Centralia on an old choo choo train or see their favorite James Bond movie with Sean Connery in a downtown theater (which was free (no cost) for me and my brothers) or shopping with mom at the downtown Sears and Woolworth (dime) stores.I guess Tacoma has grown up.As for the auto wreck with the councilmen well they can't blame it on poor old incarcerated Robert Jesse Hill."Alcohol may have been a factor" what's up with that ? |
If one is trying to do someone in it's best to mitigate culpability not the "Anyone who has ever watched The Godfather, Goodfellas, or The Sopranos know that sometimes cars just blow up. It just happens" way which would attract LE attention but just the unfortunate it's just a tragic traffic accident way.Besides penalties for vehicular "accidents" even with extremely bad outcomes (dead pedestrians,cyclists,other motorists) are a minor offense even with the heftier but rare vehicular homicide convictions.At worst just a couple of years in prison and that's only if bad intent is proven (prove it,PROVE IT!).Oops my foot slipped and I floored the accelerator.What was that bump.Never Mind I'll be on my way.Ha Ha indeed.If you're going to kill don't be stupid and use a gun which could get you life in prison be smart and use a car (or truck).Your insurance rates might go up a little bit though for each "accident".
Great Tacomic RR.

|Thanks JHF! The Dome MLK event was fun. Good singing + dancing. The keynote speaker seemed a little crazed to me, but in all the whole event was enjoyable. Stay safe on those icy streets!|
