This happened in Prescott Valley, the next town to the east of Prescott. But it captures the reality that we have a large number of senior citizens here and most of them drive. Often quite badly.
A 101 year old woman was run over, and later died, by an 83 year old woman in a Fry’s grocery store parking lot on senior discount day (1st Wednesday of each month). Link
Today’s editorial in the Prescott Daily Courier is about the meaning of Memorial Day. I think Tim Wiederaenders got it just right:
This weekend is not about automobile races, such as the Indianapolis 500 or the Prescott Valley Grand Prix (held Saturday and Sunday); trips to the ocean or camping in the mountains; or even a barbecue.
It is about those who gave all so we could enjoy those things.
While you are flipping a burger, cracking open a cold one, cheering on your favorite driver (amazing race Sunday, huh?!) or just hanging out with friends and family, please pause for a moment and remember those who made it possible.
Sometimes I agree with the paper’s editorial opinion, sometimes not. This one is worth a read.
Great American Robert E. Lee has a birthday today. The mainstream / lamestream media tries to shove General Lee down the memory black hole. I disagree!
