    I had nothing to do with this. I happened to take a wrong turn and drove down Bowes Rd. about 4:25 or 4:30 p.m. and passed right by there, (I meant to go down Sundown Rd., a few hundred yards south) and didn't notice anything. Don't be pointing fingers at me, CCTV tapes will show my vehicle never stopped. I had been on the phone with Bobsgt 10 minutes earlier, so he can attest for my stable normal state of mind. :cool:

    You've made an interesting selection as to your character witness. ;)

    He is certainly a character, so that makes him a great character witness.

    I came by to defend my honour, but decided there was no point. :p

    All I can say is that I sat on the tarmac at ORD yesterday for 90+ minutes due to the alleged grass fire...
