that guy served no time in jail, and then they gave him back his license. Haha, that'll teach him.
In the hospital parking lot right now. Mom had a heart attack this morning and was talking until in the ER. Was worked on for two hours, woke up and said" what am I still doing here?"
I was working in radio and he was in town for a show. Promoter arranged a visit for an interview. I was scared shitless thinking of the havoc he'd wreak and the abuse I'd take based on his persona.
He couldn't have been sweeter, cooler, and more gracious. Played the role on the air but was so great when the mics were off. Our staff loved him and were sad to see him leave.
His accident happened a couple months later and I wept.
I wonder what the argument was that convinced him it was okay for him to die.
Was it a threat or just a good rational reason why?
"Pierson pled guilty to one count of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence. He was sentenced to one year of probation and 300 hours of community service, and his driver's license was suspended for two years."
Need I say more. Justice is blind and fickle.
My mother died of cancer years ago , I remember her speaking with someone who wasn't there . She said "how long until I die?" , "oh , ok " and then other phrases that I can't recall correctly. It was very strange. The night when she died , some members of my family dreamd her speaking to them. I never had a dream about her as far as I remember.
I remember when Sam was killed. We had seen him sometime before the accident at SDSU. I worked at a hospital in San Diego at the time & my nurse friends & some of the doctors all thought that if only those "kind" people who lifted Sam out of his vehicle BEFORE actual paramedics got there, had left him in the car he would NOT have bled out. Being all scrunched up in the car was helping to keep his blood volume up. But they got him out, laid him flat & he died... still miss Sam.
Car he died in is fairly rare - 1989 Turbo Trans Am. I ran a 12.9 second quarter mile in mine on drag radials in 2003. Those things were/are insanely fast for 80's tech.
