Anybody have an update on the Hallmark layoffs? I heard they were targeting this week to notify people whether they would be shown the door. Maybe some Hallmark employees can post here anonymously.

What I don't understand about the KDOT story is this. Didn't the mother drive without a license? Did she have insurance? Why did she stop in the middle of a highway?

I'm sorry her children are gone but it was her fault.

^^Hey rube. You don't really have anything to add to this story, so why don't you keep your ignorant mouth shut? Nobody really wants to hear your opinion on this. It's not warranted and not welcome. it's a tragedy so just leave it at that. The world has too many ignorant, judgemental pricks like you in it already. We don't need any more. Keep your ignorant mouth shut.
