. The newspaper said they were not wearing helmets
Luckily they survived.
The newspaper said, the newspaper said...blah, blah, blah.
many years ago the newspaper said ...........he was not wearing a helmet
and moving at a high rate of speed when he hit the building,
that's right they made it a point to say....he was not wearing a helmet,
what they didn't say ............is that he was snorting meth, started drinking at noon,
drank a whole bottle of Jack Daniels, by himself and a many beers,
then at 4am (without permission)
got on his room mates three cylinder Kawasaki 500 (remember those)
butt naked and ran it wide open down the street through the T intersection
between two buildings and took his head of with the electric meter.
Yet...all the newspaper mentioned is that he was not wearing a helmet.
and now you've probably guessed how I feel about "what the newspaper said"
That opinion is also because I worked for a newspaper for 16 years.
