  • Well said Zack J Lewis… your grammar and delivery of that comment was brilliant. Hey RNRF, any chance you could make someone pass a 5th grade literacy exam before they’re allowed to post a comment? Now here’s my comment… Its a shame that loser didn’t kill himself when he ran into that pole, we’d all be a little safer out there on the roads today.
