  • How can this be?

    How can this be? A machine with decades of technological and safety advancements, but it still killed someone. Archie Beal, MisterPL, care to comment? I thought these things weren’t designed to destroy, but they do so well at it every day. Ban automobiles! They should be registered! The operators should be trained and licensed! They should be insured!
