Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 01, 2014

Whether you're naked and hungry on the savannah, driving in traffic or at the controls of your favorite video game, being slow to react can get you eaten, injured or splattered across the screen.

Unfortunate local event. Observant Jewish woman and her teenaged daughter needed to cross wide four lane highway to get to temple. Unwilling to push crosswalk button because of religious convictions they tried to cross with traffic red signal which is quicker. Women run down and killed while faster daughter will recover from injuries.
