    11 killed in car accidents in MN last week

    Most of them involving teenagers. Alcohol and text messaging appear to play a role in at least two of the accidents. One of the teens who was drunk and driving, their mother was in the car with them. Now that's good parenting.

    These types of stories make me sick. Where are the parents (Besides the one sitting next to her drunk child driving her home)? I feel bad for the families, but I'm also angry at the lack of responsibility by these kids and their parents. This number of fatalities should not happen, not in one week's time.

      I don't care how good you've gotten at it.

      I don't care if you even think that you can do it safely.

      Anyone who is texting while they drive should be shot out of a cannon. Or stuck in an elevator with Justin Bieber, Gilbert Gottfried and Snooki.

      At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

        Seeing all of these stories has been terrible. Plus a new one just today where three were killed in Dakota County. Not sure if the one today was included in that count.

        Not to mention, the prior weekend saw a rash of motorcycle related deaths.

        I'm not sure what it's going to take to get through to some of these kids who have been involved. It's gotta stop.

          Seriously... who the hell do you think you are? You are not creamed corn. You taste like corn that's been drenched in water. You suck.

              The Holiday Inn in St Paul (by the X).

              I was told that you can book rooms 50 weeks in advance. So I go online, see the dates are open for the F4. Can't book 'em. Ok, so I call the reservation manager there. She tells me:

              Rooms will be made available in late May
              You have to prepay for the room, and it's a 3 night minimum, and it's non-refundable.

              So 'ewe calls them tonight, and they tell her that they are all booked up, no rooms available.

              Horrible.


              But we both got rooms at the Crowne Plaza, so it's not so bad anymore. But I'm still p*d off at the Holiday Inn. What a *ing circus/scheme they have going there.

                Its a Holiday Inn, what did you expect? Be happy you got in at the Crowne Plaza, I was there a few months ago and its very nice. Just be sure not to take a truck if you plan on parking in their ramp. I swear the height limit in their ramp is like 6 feet. We watched a guy try to get in with his Expedition and wedge it in the entrance. Made my day.

                  Let me know what your plans are for that weekend. I'm planning on getting a room down there too, and I think shirtless is in on it too. I'm guessing you guys are full, so maybe we should just see if we can grab another room in the same place as you guys.

                  We were going to try priceline, but they may have figured that out, so it wouldn't work.

                      Tell me you didn't actually call the hotel- but the 800 number...

                      Never, never, ever call the actual hotel for a H.I. reservation.

                      We did that once, and they hung up on us, so I called the 800 number, and got a room (it was the only one in the area- I told the manager about the "incident" and he denyed it- so we just don't travel there anymore).

                      I'd bet that we could call H.I., use the g-rate, and get a room in 8 months from now for the FF...

                        Would it be wrong for me to just have someone off-ed 'cause he's a waste of space, life, and there is no one that values him?

                        Ok, I know it would be wrong. But I still don't think anyone would miss him.

                        Perhaps he could just retire so I don't have to deal with him anymore. He's 65 and senile, why won't someone just force him into retirement already?

                            People with earbuds in while driving. There is no way you can be aware of your surroundings while wearing them.
