WTF. The dude hit the back AND the side? Score some points for that somehow.

…that’s what I get for posting without context.

No, the back damage is all from a fender bender I got into a year or two ago. This guy only hit me in the side. The back shot is there to show that he ran me into the curb pretty good, which means I’m due for some work on the passenger side wheel, I’m told. Supposedly I’ll know the full extent of the damages today sometime.

Was that a hit and run?

1. Sure was. Cops have yet to find the guy, too, so I’ll be out about $1k for the fixes. Should get it back pretty soon, so we’ll see how it goes.

2. Heard about the Helena-West Helena thing, hadn’t heard about Hartford, though it fails to surprise me, considering that Hartford is pretty much the problem center for the entire state. We read some stuff for class about the Hartford Public Library, which is having a real problem with, oh, everything. Porn on the computers, sex in the restrooms, drugs, the list goes on.

Little surprised there are places that DON’T have a pre-18 curfew, to be honest.

New Haven tried to have one, I think. It didn’t go over well, because there was no way to apply it to New Haven HS kids without inevitably catching some Yale kids with it (there are a fair few 17 y/o freshmen, for one thing), and college kids don’t take too kindly to having to be inside by 9 p.m.
