So we agree the color of the jury matters? Does this mean a black defendant can't get a fair trial with a white jury?
Right, because this trial can totally be compared to and is indicative of the typical criminal trial in the US  ::)

I never took you for the "unsubstantiated retorts" type of guy  ;)
Is this your first day on DDF?

They will decide on the evidence. You ever serve on a jury?

I'm looking for a good laptop for my kid. $5-$10 range.  :P
Just a few days (or is it weeks?) until the chauvin verdict, there should be some pretty hot "sales" somewhere near you...

Judging by this thread I would think you'd be glad :P

Until he magically improves & the institution deems him fit to be released into society.
The guy is legit mentally ill, it's not just an excuse they came up with now for the trial.

(I'm not excusing him or anything like that, just stating the fact.)

I wonder what their overhead is for processing every such toll is? Those costs get passed on to you...
Don't forget to factor in the savings from eliminating manned tollbooths and printing the tickets.

How do I fix this? I replaced with longer screws but they still won't hold.
Try packing the holes with toothpicks (and wood glue if you have) then screwing it back in.

Anyone else have a gross fascination for this stuff?

Iíll start. I was driving in Lakewood and noticed a cemetery at the very end of spruce st. I did a drop of research and thereís a high school kid that got murdered in the 80ís . Long story short, thereís supposedly a tree that grew near the spot that (the branches) are unmistakably in the shape of JL. Also supposedly people who drove too close to the tree had their cars stalled.
Am I the only one who doesn't see the "unmistakable" JL?

Thanks. Saw that. Seems more general in nature, and was looking more specifically for people planning a trip in the AZ/UT area.
In that case you probably want to post in the UT or AZ threads in the Destination Guides And Trip Planning board.

Or alternatively, start an RV destination thread.

it's hard to beat matching the miles remaining gauge with the distance of the next gas station
If you can make it to OH vs filling filling up in PA you'll save some money.

There's a good exit at the beginning of OH with a bunch of truck stops etc, IIRC it's exit 234. (talking about I80)

Sure, there are likely tons all along the i80, but it's not as clean an experience.
I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

You guys are acting like I80 is some little desert road with services every hundred miles...

Easier to get off if need be, but only places worth stopping are truck stops

There are occasional large breaks between exits with services, but ime not much different than the turnpike. What it comes down to is will there be a bathroom when your kids need it (which is right after you got back on after the last exit, and the answer is probably not;)
I don't think there are many more areas with 3 lanes on the turnpike, but I may be wrong.

I haven't taken the PA turnpike in many years so I can't really compare the two, but having driven I80 dozens of times (mostly at night) I can assure you these concerns are being exaggerated.
The PA rest stops are kinda dated but do the job when you need a bathroom stop.
