1 When fast food isn't fast, there may be consequences
by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | June 22nd, 2017

We're all accustomed to the convenience of fast food. We are willing to stand in line at McDonald's or KFC for a couple of minutes while a smiling employee in a goofy uniform, earning minimum wage, stuffs our order into a paper bag and hands us our change. But what happens when fast food is not fast enough?

by Dan Brawner Columnist · Opinions | June 15th, 2017

Some say Donald Trump became truly presidential when he ordered missile strikes on Syria. Others have said he became presidential when he honored fallen Navy SEAL William Ryan Owens.

6 Semi driver crushes antique bridge, with GPS to blame

The driver presumably saw the warning sign, but explained to authorities that he was only following the directions on his GPS. (Lucky for him, his GPS didn't tell him to drive into the Pacific Ocean.) Estimates for the repair are expected to be in the range of $900,000.

He said, 'There's no reason for this.'"
