    Fox news is reporting that a Greyhound bus on I24 between Nashville and Chattanooga has crashed. There is a report from a passenger on board that another passenger got up and slit the throat of the driver. It it suspected that up to 10 people died in the crash...

    I hope this isn't related and I hope this isn't a terrorist attack of some sort.. My neighborhood is loaded like a small arsenal. Giving the people here further reason to be in fear could lead to some bad bad things.

    Corey. It is being reprted that 3 additional people died in the crash outside Manchester, Tn. They are also repeating the rumor that the driver's throat was cut causing the accident.

    Cindy,

    They had a poor PA lady from Greyhound on Fox right now and I had to feel bad for her. They started asking the "tough" questions about:
    -Do you have a passenger list?
    -Are there any metal detectors or security measures to prevent people from getting anything dangerous on board..

    She's in a bad spot because the answers to those questions aren't exactly what people want to hear...

    My wife is certain that this is just the action of a nutball. I hope she's right but in either event, it's sad..

    Does this now all but wrap up everyone's stance that ANYONE acting funny on a vessel of mass transportation acting funny will get the heck beat out of them?

    Most now feel that this was not terrorism but a random act of violence. Hopefully that is the case but I'm sure that doesn't make the victims and their families feel any better. My prayers go out to them.

    What is this world coming to? This guy was here on a one month visa since 1999 from Croatia (sp?). If people thought the borders were tight before, they ought to be sealed now.

    At the Tennessee vs. Arkansas game, we met a Canadian lady that was angry with Bush for making it so hard for her to imigrate. I would bet that she now understands and is having an even harder time of it now.

    Tom,

    I'd like to see a serious clamp down of the borders and then do a bit of rake and comb thru the current population looking for those who are in violation of the law...

    Once we have weeded out "the illegals", we can worry about restructuring our visa program..

    Heard this morning that Sen. Kennedy is blocking a bill that would allow deportation of aliens who are caught donating funds to terrorists.

    Cory...Right you are..shut all "incoming" travel down for 3-6 months. Steel Curtain the borders..and get out the fine combs. Start with every guest list at hotels for last 6 months right up to present. Have every employee at every business investigated. There has to be thousands that would be vacuumed up that are questionable. jif

    I had posted a picture that ran in the paper with a sick caption. It's what I did for a living for a long time...

    It's not time yet.

    Stu,

    I honestly believe that Sen Kennedy has "other" reasons for wanting to shoot down that piece of legislation that has nothing to do with American Patriotism or Civil Liberties.
