We may want to rage against the other drivers that were raging upon us so we might stick out our finger or wave a fist or two, shake our heads with disappointment, or maybe try to cut them off as they had done to us. I can now see where Godfried gets his point across to us by saying we are all a bit crazy when it comes to our cars, with other people on the road cutting us off, or just daily commuting. However, in his article when he starts to over exaggerate his point of view, as when he says the “new America” that we have the “mentality of hoodlum and the backbone of a coward.” That our “car is its weapon and hiding place,” or even “Bullies are
But, it didn’t go as planned. We all walked in, and I got jerked to the side. Everyone was pulled in different directions. I was all by myself. I kept whispering to myself, “I can get through this.” This one monster, he looked like a cat that had just got ran over by a car, jumped out and hit me.
When Ron carelessly throws a burrito out of his car window at a passing motorcyclist, things get ugly and result in the motorcyclist kicking Ron’s dog Baxter off the highway bridge and into the sea. Devastated, Ron is unable to pull himself together in time to report the news. Seeing her chance, Veronica takes this chance to fill in for Ron’s news reporting. Not unpredictably, Veronica takes San Diego’s approval and is appointed co-anchorman, to Ron’s disgust. But Veronica seems to be getting too carried away, and one day she changes Ron’s news script, fooling him to say some very bad words on national television.
He reached down and pulled to the curb three girls who are squeezed between hundreds of others in despair, jostling to escape the inferno of smoke and flames that turned the nightclub. A Brazilian newspaper wrote, “there was a barrier of bodies blocking the entrance.” And the door closed inward which prevented a smooth outward flow of people running out for dear life. After the tragedy, many of the survivors of this fire suffered sequelae and remained hospitalized for more serious situation. All patients requiring mechanical ventilation were considered more complex cases. Others could not survive after hospitalized.
Driving while being distracted by other things is a dangerous risk most drivers choose to take every day. I found Barry’s essay “Driving while stupid” to be very effective in giving detailed examples of people driving dangerously. By him adding humor to his essay, I felt was a great way for him to get his point across and to keep the readers interest on such a serious topic. The point Barry was trying to make about some drivers is how they have “insane driving techniques” (Barry, 2011, p. 584) such as driving way to fast, not using the headlights at night, and having things distracting the drivers view. Barry also adds that “drivers do not have time for steering, as they are busy making phone calls, eating, reading, changing CDs, putting on makeup, brushing their teeth, etc.” (Barry, 2011, p.584).
All of these things can irritate even the best of drivers, and cause them to make poor decisions on the road. Aggressive drivers will always be on the highways. Rather than ignore the problem, though, we need to drive defensively for our own protection. One example of encountering a driver in a hurry would be the time I was waiting in the mall parking lot for a space to empty. Sitting there behind the car that was reversing out, I had my blinker on, signaling my intention of filling the spot.
If someone turned on the radio right at this moment they would hear an abundance of swear words, references to sex, stanzas exclaiming how much they love a certain drug, a verse about how someone dodged a bullet, in a literal sense, or lyrics objectifying women. Inappropriate allusions in songs are negatively changing our youth and ultimately our country as a whole. Society believes that violent music and other violent media outlets are the reason big massacres occur in America. For example, Pat Stack pointed out an instance after the Columbine shooting where “some right wing American shock-jock being interviewed as to why the massacre had happened. The music of Marilyn Manson, video nasties, and lack of parental control were all cited.” Two of those three reasons fall into the category of music violence and prove that derogatory words and phrases changes the youth negatively.
screamin' your name It's no wonder you can't go to sleep, just take another pill Yeah, I bet you you will. You rap about it, yeah, word, k-keep it real I hear applause, all this time I couldn't see How could it be, that the curtain is closing on me I turn around, find a gun on the ground, cock it Put it to my brain, scream "Die Shady!" and pop it The sky darkens, my life flashes, the plane that I was Supposed to be on crashes and burns to ashes That's when I wake up, alarm clock's ringin', there's birds singin' It's spring and Hailie's outside swinging, I walk right up to Kim and kiss her Tell her I miss her, Hailie just smiles and winks at her little sister Almost as if to say [Chorus/Outro] And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain Just smile back And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain Just smile back...

We piled in all the help we could get into my car and split towards camp-forced to take the long way. Everything was all happening at once as I tried to make sense of it all peeking into my rear view mirror at the chaos going on behind me while keeping control of my car on the small winding trail. Directions were being shouted, a girl was crying, one was praying and one was still trying to get the girl to come to. As wetore down the last mile on the drag the girl’s heart stopped. There was no longer any doubt in my mind that this was happening.
Simmons wanted to bond and tie the victim and discard her off the bridge. Simmons convinced his two friends that they would not be convicted for these acts because they are still considered juveniles (under the age of eighteen). On September 9th at approximately 2 a.m. met up with each other to carry out Simmons plan to murder the victim. Tessmer left the group after changing his mind, shortly after they met up. Simmons and Benjamin still decided to carry out the plan; they broke into the victim’s home by reaching through an open window and unlocking the back door.
