    It's a Team's Life Government Shutdown: It's a Teams Life

    The reason, imho, the costs were so high was not greed. It was to cover those who worked the system, such as emergency rooms, and never paid their bill.

    Dodge van?

    Yesterday I had occasion to be in Columbus on I-270. I'm sure as I drove by the Dodge dealer, Performance Dodge, just by Georgesville Road I saw a new Dodge van sitting out there on the front row. Anyone else noticed?

    What brand of coffee tastes most like McDonalds?

    If you like McD's coffee, try the "Pilot House" blend at Pilot/FlyingJ .... I find McD's, (over the long haul) gives me stomach pains. Acid I guess. Pilot House never did. That said, I also like McD's coffee ..... but most of my "oreder out" coffee is now served in a ceramic cup from Waffle House.

    T. E. Smith; Liars, Cheats and Theives

    Promises do not a contract make. You are in a volatile industry, there are NO guarentees of the revenue you will make. I don't know anything about TE Smith, but your experience is not unusual in the entire industry.

    Obamas Syria case flawed

    Thankfully my congressman, Mike Turner, is opposed to this. But his buddy Boehner, who serves the district next to me thinks it is a good idea. He thinks anything the President says is good. As for Senators, Portman seems ok, however, Sherrod Brown is a wimp and is more liberal than his leader...

    Average inside Length of cargo space

    Dan, I can think of several reasons not to buy the 3500, tire cost isn't one of them. Over the life of those two additional tires, increased revenues with the extra weight could buy dozens more tires. The major cost of a 3500 vs a 2500 would be having the wheel wells modified for pallets. And...

    Average inside Length of cargo space

    At this moment in time, the 9900 pound, dual wheel version of the Sprinter van, (3500), is the longest, with the most freight capacity. You can affect the real world limits of that by custom built in sleepers and additional equipment onboard...

    2 dead, 1 hurt in fiery wreck on I-75 near Tipp City

    I'm watching the ODOT cam at that exit, seems they now have the traffic going off, and back on, at the exit, no detour in affect.

    2 dead, 1 hurt in fiery wreck on I-75 near Tipp City

    You think it bothers you, Murray? Two people will never be going home ...... Seems it all started, (latest reports), when a semi slammed into the rear of another in construction ..... reports like these are much to common. One can only wonder why the driver was so distracted. Texting, phone...
